Kyong Burke was born and grew up in South Korea and came to USA in 1981. In 2010, after her children left their nest, she decided to take figure drawing classes at Glassell School of Art, MFA-Houston. In 2011, she left her job after 14 years of working with special needs children to become a full time artist. She is now creating and showing her work at Silver Street Studios in Houston Texas. In 2014 her paintings were selected to exhibit in the International Watercolor Juried Exhibition and Visual Arts Alliance 31st Juried Open Exhibition in Houston and several other group exhibitions. She likes to paint a variety of subject matters and approaches each differently depending on how she wants to express with watercolor, acrylic or oil.
I like to paint a variety of subject matter. I approach each differently depending on how I want to express with watercolor, acrylic or oil. My paintings mostly represent realistic style, but I also mix with contemporary technique of textures.I enjoy composing single/simple forms of subjects, but not always.
