화가 이늠이

She is a writer and painter with MFAs from Pratt Institute and Queens College. Her paintings have been set pieces in several Hollywood movies, including “Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants,” and “American Gangster.”
She had the distinction of being the first Korean-American painter whose work was featured in film in this way. This led to a great deal of media coverage.
