JiHyeon Lee was born in Seoul, where she lives today. She studied Media Art at Kaywon School of Art and Design, and illustration at HILLS (Hankuk Illustration School). JiHyeon’s debut picturebook, ‘Pool’, which she created for a project at HILLS, has been highly praised and translated into several languages.
In this post, JiHyeon talks about the creation of ‘Pool’. Inspired by a one-off visit to a swimming pool as a non-swimmer, JiHyeon’s magnificent wordless picturebook celebrates curiosity, imagination, and forming new friendships through shared experiences.
