About jinseikou

Jinhee(Artist name, jinseikou) began drawing at a very early age in her mother's art schools. Since 10 year-old, she has learned from dessin to water & oil paintings under the traditional art curriculums in S.Korea and Japan. Simplicity, delicate realism and the tension of spreading inky pigment on watery paper have fascinated her for around three decades. Currently, she is living in NYC and working as a commission artist & illustrator.

Hi Jinhee, I absolutely adore the simplicity and beauty of your prints. I especially love your "Mokuren" prints; it completely reminds me of the beautiful cherry blossom trees I was able to experience in Japan this past spring. I'm really drawn to your work, you're clearly very talented.

Hi Jinhee, I'm so glad you ended up submitting your Ted series! They caught my eye on your website, and I knew they would be right at home on Minted :) I saw that "Ted" received an Editor's Pick, and was also excited to read your artist feature on the Minted blog! Congratulations on your wins, and I hope to see your name on the winner's list for the Spaces and Places challenge. Your drawings and watercolors have such a soft, still, minimalist beauty to them, and I can't wait to see more of them in the future. Congratulations again!
