About Me
Hello! My name is Paran. I'm glad that you are visiting my site.
I'm a freelance illustrator based in Dresden, Germany. 
I grew up in Seoul, South Korea, and moved to Tokyo to study fine art. 
I have traveled a lot and had various jobs including being an art teacher for children and a career at a nursing home.  
However I realized my true passion lay in making picture books and became a full-time illustrator.  
As far as I remember, drawing is the greatest passion in my life. When I am not drawing, I also love singing and playing the guitar.
