About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Artist, writer & activist
Location Madison, Wisconsin, United States
Introduction I was reared as a “Tennerican,” part Tennessean, part Puerto Rican. But the truth be known, I was born Korean. I was adopted and loved by my parents in a rural, East Tennessee town called Newport. Accented with art photography, ceramics and poetry, my blog explores my observations and thoughts as I ponder my past. Thanks for coming along! You can find me on Twitter @mothermade, on YouTube as The Korean Hillbilly and on the Lost Daughters website.
Interests my children, great design, art photography, ceramics, fine art, wine
