USU Paper & Clay National Juried Exhibition

Juror: Yoomi Nam

Yoonmi Nam was born and raised in Seoul, South Korea, spending part of her youth in Canada. She received a BFA degree in Printmaking from Hong-Ik University in Seoul, Korea. She moved to the U.S. to study at the Rhode Island School of Design, where she received a MFA degree in Painting/Printmaking in 2000.
