Seika was born with Korean heritage in Japan, moved to the United States with her German husband, and now lives in Switzerland with her family and works as a bojagi textile artist. She is a human resource planner and a mum of a little girl, too. Fascinated by jogakbo, traditional bojagi patchwork, she first started making bojagi. Now, while adapting to western culture, she makes various lyrical bojagi patchworks and textile artwork.
To make her artwork, she often stitches together small pieces of leftover fabric. Through this, her artwork reflects the idea of cherishing and being grateful even for the small things in life.
All of her work is hand sewn. Making bojagi brings a lot of happiness to her everyday life. She feels that each of her bojagi represents a moment in her life and a piece of her heart.
She takes part in exhibitions, gives classes, and provides books, original kits, and Korean fabrics during her events. This will be her first exhibition in France.
