Artist/Author/Illustrator You Byun was born in Queens, New York. Byun grew up in America, Korea and Japan. Byun likes to draw imaginative landscapes that capture the magic around her with lush environments and a variety of memorable characters. She draws her influences from the various cultures she has lived amongst. Her illustrative storytelling is achieved through delicate details woven with rich colors, patterns and decorative ornaments. The works invite you into her imaginative realm that is playful yet sometimes tinged with a somber autumnal hint of transformation and loss. Byun now lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
