Jina Kim is an artist from South Korea who is currently living in Jackson, Wyoming, USA. She started painting when she was a very little girl. She always knew that she was fated to be an artist since then.
The journey of her art career started at last in 2010 after she graduated college, where she majored in Ceramic Art and Fashion Design. She started developing her own style of painting, the 'Colorfreak series.' This series led to Jina starting her 'Colorfreak world' after her travels and research into tribal art and patterns.
After she got married, she immigrated to the United States and launched her art career in Jackson WY, where she began to create paintings based on inspiration from Native American art and patterns and Western landscapes, which she has now integrated into her style. Jina's website
