Born in 1967, Sooyeon Hong was exposed to painting from an early age by her mother who was an art teacher in Seoul, Korea. After earning her undergraduate and graduate degree in Western Painting at Hongik University, known to have the most sophisticated program in the nation, she proceeded to further build and solidify her artistic style at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York, where she got her M.F.A.  She currently resides in Seoul, Korea. Hong has been included in numerous solo and group exhibitions in the United States, Europe, and Asia.  Notable solo shows were at Indipress in Seoul and NYB Gallery in Kirkland, WA.

Her works are in the permanent collections of the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Korea, the Seoul National University Museum of Art, and the Kumho Museum of Art among others.
