KANSAS CITY ART INSTITUTE BFA IN GRAPHIC DESIGN
Mary Lim writes: “My parents emigrated from South Korea to live in the U.S. in 1993 as missionaries. By then, my two older sisters were already 7 and 5 years old, while I was just born. We moved around frequently, living in Baltimore for two years, in Milwaukee for 3 years, and then finally settling in Chicago in 1998. Growing up, I would often watch my mom sculpt things out of clay and paint with watercolors. She would also teach art classes for the church community, where I learned how to draw and paint. Needless to say, I was heavily influenced by my mom to pursue a career in art. I am currently earning a BFA in Graphic Design at the Kansas City Art Institute.”
