Susie Pak, born and raised in Seoul Korea, began exploring art at a young age by first copying Manga characters in 5th Grade. As she grew older she auditioned and was accepted to the prestigious Seoul Art High School to further develop her passion in the arts. After graduating the rigorous program, Susie went on to attend the world renowned EWHA Women’s University in Seoul, Korea eventually receiving a BFA, Arts Major.
After she was married she moved to Chicago, IL then eventually Los Angeles, CA where she attended FIDM in Downtown L.A., graduating with a President Honor. Her focus on Design Merchandising at FIDM lead her to work at Macy’s as their main Window Displayer. After a short break, Susie returned to Fine Art. She had her first solo Art show in February of 2009 entitled “Pink, Not Green” at LouWe Gallery in South Pasadena, CA followed a few months later (October '09) with “The Journey to Home.” Another exhibition at SPACE in South Pasadena, CA was entitled “Real Hero/Tinman” and her most recent Solo show at SPACE Gallery called “I Am Listening” was opened to a packed house in the summer of 2016. Susie was also a finalist featured in the 32nd Annual “Made in California” Juried Gallery show at the Brea Gallery in Brea, California. Her artwork featured on 8 time Grammy Award Winning Jazz Artist Tierney Sutton for the cover of her album Tierney Sutton Band“The String Variations”. This month you can find Susie Pak’s work in a new show called “Lucky Days” opening in South Korea for A-Lounge Gallery June 2019.
