Artist Interview

Week 14 – Artist Interview – Yireh Elaine Kwak


This is Yireh Elaine Kwak with her work, Home. Her work was featured in the gallery, Liminal, an exhibit featuring many senior’s work on the concept of a transition they went through in their life.

Elaine is a senior, majoring in drawing and painting. She enjoys doing landscapes but also likes other types. She works with anything that inspires her. Home is of her backyard in Fullerton. She currently doesn’t live there anymore but that place played a big role in her life. It wasn’t just a house but it was her HOME. It symbolizes her family and the importance of nature to her and family. She started this work first by roughly drawing from observation and finishing with her memory of the site. It took her about a month and a half to complete.

Elaine praises her home and family for supporting her throughout her career in art.

Elaine plans to take a break from school after graduating. She’s going to “do her” and build her portfolio. She plans to attend grad school, hopefully somewhere in NorCal, like UC Berkeley. I hope her talents take her far in the art world.
