SooMee Kim began her career in textiles at University in Seoul, majoring in Batik and Weaving/Tapestry.
She completed her Masters of Applied Art (Textiles) in Korea; and also studied Textiles at Box Hill Institute Melbourne for a year in 2006.
It was in fact her introduction to felting in Melbourne, which is now her home, which ignited her on-going passion for this textile medium.
She has had numerous exhibitions in Australia and Korea and her work, which displays a fusion of Oriental and Western influences.
She has returned to Korea to teach at her Alma Mater and is a regular visiting Professor teaching felting at Ulaanbaatar University in Mongolia.
As well as teaching abroad, she has given numerous workshops in Melbourne. SooMee’ s work displays the influence of both the Korean and Australian landscapes and her love of each; and it is constantly evolving without losing a strong focus on design and an unerringly accurate ability to make colour sing.
