Flame By The Beach

‹Return to Previous Page
Artist

Landscape and wildlife artist, Misun Holdorf, was born in Seoul, Korea and moved to the beautiful Island of Guam as a teenager, where she found her first tropical inspiration for her paintings. She took art classes, flew the world as an airline employee, and lived in many different cities and islands. From then on, she was influenced in many ways to create and express her passion on canvases. Misun also expresses her feelings with vibrant color and natural texture. She holds impressionistic excitement with her palette knives and oil painting.

Misun studied art in Korea, Guam, and Los Angeles, while working and traveling for an airline, which provided broad perspective and inspiration for the natural world that she paints today. Her colorful tree paths are the paths she wants to take in her colorful journey of life. Her heart is in her beach scenes.

Misun was awarded first place for Top 100 Artists in San Diego in March, 2016.

Adelman Fine Art represents Misun Holdorf in San Diego, California.

Q/A WITH MISUN:

 

AFA: Tell us about your most memorable experience as a flight attendant…
MISUN: “Too many, but the first year of flying we had an emergency layover in a small pacific island due to a typhoon. During the island tour, a local young man handed me a whole plant as a welcoming gift. I thought that was very sweet but the whole crew laughed so hard. I didn’t realize that it was a marijuana plant. “

 

AFA: When someone encounters your work for the first time – what do you hope they will grasp or enjoy about the paintings?
MISUN: “I hope viewers to want to place themselves in my paintings. I want people to feel the warm light coming down through the trees while they walk through the scene.”

 

AFA: Do you ever have days when you feel like you just can’t create, but need to? How do you overcome that obstacle?
MISUN: “I like to go to beach and stare at the ocean or trees for a while. It helps to refresh the creative side of my brain.”

 

AFA: What do you think is your spirit animal and why?
MISUN: “I want the joyful dolphin as my spirit animal. Dolphins symbolize peace and harmony, inner strength, protection, and playfulness.”

 

AFA: Please explain your style of painting and why you chose that path…
MISUN: “My style is impressionistic with many layers of short strokes. I use the impasto technique with oil and palette knives to build thick, buttery paint on canvas. I can be more expressive, depicting light and color intensely. The texture provides a three-dimensional feel.”

 

AFA: What type of music do you listen to while you paint?
MISUN: “Depending on the subject, I usually listen to Bossanova, Jazz, a little bit of rock and Hawaiian.”

 

AFA: If you weren’t an artist, what would you be doing with your life?
MISUN: “I would like to own a private island resort with a coffee farm.”

 

AFA: If you were an animated character, who would you be and why?
MISUN: “People who had a hard time remembering my name used to call me Mulan. I didn’t mind because the brave princess rescued the prince, unlike most stories.”

 

AFA: Who are you art heroes?
MISUN: “Vincent Van Gogh, Paul Signac, and David Hockney.”

 

AFA: What piece of art from the current Adelman collection would you buy for yourself?

MISUN: “Shattered by Iris Scott”
