Artist Biography & Statement:
Joanne Nam is a LA based illustrator.
“I was born in Korea and spent most of my childhood in the middle of a forest. Most of the subject matters of the paintings I created were from those memories in the forest. However, I avoided reproducing simple images of the memories, but I wanted to express the impression of them. The visual images of memories in my head are vague and most of times hard to tell, but the feeling of it is the thing that lasts. If you look at my painting and feel something from it, that is what I tried to convey.” – Joanne Nam
Joanne graduated from Art Center College of Design and currently working on oil paintings, graphite drawings, and pottery.
