I was born in Seoul, Korea in 1959. I came to the United States to study history and received a PhD degree in British history at the University of Minnesota in 1993. Soon after I earned the final degree, I decided to take art classes at the Art League School in Alexandria, VA and it turned out to be a life-changing decision. I have been using both sides of my brain ever since! I retired from teaching recently and now paint full time.
Every month I challenge myself to do a series of paintings; the June/July Challenge is "Sail Away." I give away a print or small original painting twice a month. Please sign up for my monthly newsletter for information. Here is the link: http://kstenberg.fineartstudioonline.com/email-newsletter
