Bio:

Since graduating with a highly conceptual art degree from UCSD in 1996, I've sought to compliment a fine art practice oriented around mass communications by learning as much as possible about printing and publishing. I've worked as a screen printer's assistant, hand stripped film for packaging, jockeyed PDF's for Web Offset. I have a 1930 Chandler and Price letterpress in my garage.

After a decade covered in ink I decided to return to school, earning an MFA in Visual Communication from The School of The Art Institute of Chicago, and become a teacher so I could put my skills at the service of young people setting out on their own creative journey.

Feel free to look at my ongoing design, publishing and letterpress printing on instagram @is.press

Yunjin La-mei Woo is a socially-engaged artist and a cultural-studies researcher. Born as the granddaughter of a Korean shaman, her artistic practice is informed by her research on various notions of humanness and how such notions intersect with issues of power, gender, class, and ethnicity.

Her creative work ranges widely from installation to video, performance, sculpture, writing, and participatory projects. Woo has exhibited, published, and presented her creative work and research in various venues both internationally and nationally. She earned her BFA and MFA from Seoul National University, South Korea, and is currently working on her PhD dissertation in Communication and Culture at Indiana University, Bloomington, USA. At Metropolitan State University of Denver, Woo teaches interdisciplinary art practices as an Assistant Professor in Art.
