Clara Young Kim was born in Seoul, Korea, and studied music since she was four years old. She attended Yonsei University as a voice major and taught piano. Her musical background plays a strong role in her way of capturing images and moments. She believes that the elements of an image, such as the colors, lines, shapes, brightness, and contrast, all contain their own notes and beats in a very orchestral way. These quality pieces and work together in harmony to produce a beautiful image and work of art. She enjoys creating and sharing moments that can strike a chord in the viewer's soul.
