Paige Jiyoung Moon - CV + BIO

Paige Jiyoung Moon creates intricately rendered paintings depicting memories that she wants to preserve. Some depict special experiences such as trips to National Parks. Others depict her with her husband and friends in ordinary activity. Moon does not always follow rules of perspective or scale, but that does not diminish her paintings. They have an honesty and innocence that shines through.
