Born in Kwang-Ju, South Korea, Ji Oh immigrated to Los Angeles with her
family when she was 16 years old. She was exposed to art from early
childhood and was especially fascinated with color mixing and drawings. Her
parents supported her academic art training on Western art throughout middle
school and high school in Korea. Receiving recognition for her talent in
American high school was a big encouragement during her adjustment to life
in America. She received her BFA from California State University Fullerton
and her MFA from Claremont Graduate University in Drawing and Painting.
As the representative of her graduate school, Ji participated in the Visual Art
Competition for the Los Angeles Arts Council Art Scholarship Awards and
was awarded the Second Prize. Following graduate school and an
inspirational two-month solo backpacking tour of western Europe, Ji
continued her art career and private teaching at her studio in Walnut,
California. She has exhibited her artwork extensively at museums and
galleries throughout the United States and internationally, including Australia,
Japan, Korea, Mexico, and Singapore.
