Joann Lee Kim works at the intersection of art, justice and faith, creating works
that challenge unjust societal constructs and humanize the dehumanized. Joann enjoys the careful and reflective process of painting and drawing humans, as it allows her to value their stories and see them as wonderfully made. Her training in public art making and in the field of conflict analysis and resolution has given her a lens through which to create socially engaged works, live paint, lead workshops and organize collaborative art making projects. Joann studied Art Studio at Vanderbilt University, mural making with the City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program, and Conflict Analysis and Resolution at George Mason University. She currently lives and works in the greater Seattle area with her toddler, clergy-spouse and doggie.
