"I express my art through magnetic abstraction" - Sophia Hyun

Sophia Hyun is an abstract artist whose faith ignites her work.  As a Korean American raised in South America her art has been influenced by the many cultures she has explored.  Ms. Hyun loves to travel the world and be exposed to new places in order to open her mind to an unlimited  understanding of humanity and nature.  She has a deep fascination with the multifaceted nature of the human spiritual experience and this expression transfer to her art.

After successfully accomplishing her goals in the fashion industry in Los Angeles, Ms Hyun relocated to Orange County.  Having been inspired by the art scene in Laguna Beach, she decided to pursue her long-held passion for painting.  Blending her talent for painting and her passion for Christ has given Ms. Hyun a new, fulfilling purpose in life.

In her unique paintings inspired by music, nature, travel and meditation, mood is created through the use of simple lines, geometric shapes, mixed media, composition, dimension and colors that bring a feeling of harmony, paired with the beauty of movement.
