Michelle EunYoung Song

Biography

Michelle EunYoung Song is a botanical artist in Seoul, South Korea.

She specializes in coloured & graphite pencil work but she loves to draw in a variety of materials.
She thinks that the accurate and precise lines in coloured pencil drawing can describe more than any other explanation. If she decides to draw a plant,  she chooses the proper material to express her inspiration from the plant. She grows many plants in her atelier and observes the life cycle through the seasons, learning the characteristics of the plant. In particular, she enjoys understanding the patterns of plants.

Michelle’s botanical art class is running in ‘L’Atelier de Michelle’ in Seoul, South Korea. Her first book ‘Basic Botanical art’ and coloring book were published in Korea in April 2019. An English version will be published soon.
