Kim is a Vancouver-based concept artist and illustrator currently finishing a senior year in Emily Carr's Illustration BFA program. A daughter of archaeologists, her work is driven from an early desire to understand the world, its history, and find fantastical ways to innovate on it. She strives to better represent the diversity of the actual in the fantastical, and for everyone to see a place for themselves in it.
