THE COOPER UNION SCHOOL OF ART

Jeehye Yim is a senior at The Cooper Union School of Art. She was raised in Seoul, Korea, and is currently based in New York. She first fell in love with art when she realized it was a way to communicate with people who do not speak her language. She became interested in graphic design because it is a point where her love for art and interest in math meet. Besides graphic design, she enjoys drawing, printmaking, constructing things out of paper, and making animations. She still secretly dreams of playing a role in the process of making a Disney movie one day.
