Minsooky was born in Seoul, South Korea on November 5, 1986, but grew up in the United States.  An interest in beauty and art fascinated her from an early age.  Obsessed with fantasy art, she became enamored with artists Linda Bergkvist and Stephanie Pui-Mun Law in her teens, obsessively painting her own fantasies and characters on canvas.  Here she posted her own art under the name Minsooky. 


In 2012, an interest in makeup began, which eventually led her to discovering special effects makeup.  In 2016, she started exploring makeup as an art medium, posting her creations to Instagram and Youtube.

She is currently working on a series of looks to be eventually exhibited locally, with a bigger goal of hosting her own solo exhibition someday.  Themes such as death, religion, mental health, and distorted perceptions of beauty are prevalent throughout her work.
