I’m an artist currently living in Highland, Illinois. My family has moved seventeen times since we’ve immigrated to USA from Korea in 1980. I consider Philadelphia, where I lived for ten (2003-2013) years, as the most memorable place, because my dream came true there. Since I was a child, I wanted to be an artist. But it was only when we were in Philadelphia that I was able to study the fine arts. The object I am sending to you (image attached) is made up of a paint tube and the head of a brush that I’ve used while I was a student in the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. The empty paint tube reminds me how much I enjoyed and felt that I accomplished in Philadelphia.
