Janey Eunkyung Lee


Janey is a Korean illustrator currently residing in New York City. She graduated from Parsons School of Design, majoring in Illustration (2016). 

Her favourite artist is Maira Kalman. The lines and colours of Kalman’s paintings are forever providing her with infinite inspiration.

“I often use vibrant colours to describe anthropomorphised human-like animals. When I create characters, I never sketch on the surface. However; I believe and follow my intuition and imagination to animate them and bring them to life. I mainly use watercolours to produce my work, but I also use pens as a tool to illustrate objects with greater detail. These drawings are vastly different to my regular illustrative style.”

Recently Janey has participated in several exhibitions in New York, and also participated in the Korean Design Art Fair, 2017.
