Eun Sook Byun is a lifelong, award-winning poet who is heavily influenced by her life in Montreal.

The themes from her published work Le Montréalais (2012) find new life on the canvas under the mentorship of artist H. Jou Lee.

With her emphasis on layering opposing elements and her evolving techniques, her paintings can be seen as an extension of her poetry.

Eun Sook self-examines the limitations of expressing herself in a new language after immigrating and the satisfaction and joy of expressing herself through abstract creativity.
