Rebecca Choi (Sunnu)
Rebecca (Sunnu is her artist name which is her Korean nickname) is originally from South Korea, lived in Toronto, New York, Winnipeg, Calgary and recently moved to Vancouver. She graduated from Parsons the New School for Design in New York, and received BFA in fashion design.
She worked as a fashion designer in New York & Toronto for about 10 years, specializing womens/mens knitwear & activewear, before she changed her career path to art & illustration.
She does freelance illustrating editorial work for companies and magazines and making fine art for commissions.
Her main medium is watercolour, but always explores new techniques and plays with other mediums including gouache, soft & oil pastels and acrylics.
She loves to go on an adventure with her little traveler’s notebook and sketchbook and draw anything and everything.
Drawing and painting helped me to heal and recover my broken soul. It brought me joy, happiness and hope.
Since then it became a part of my life. My inspiration comes from everyday life. I draw anything that comes up to my mind and document what I see in this world and how I feel at that moment.
