Soyoung Lee, Author-Illustraor of ‘Beyond the Shadow’
After studying design at Seoul National University I got my Master’s at ENSAAMA Oliver de Serres in Paris and now I am studying for my PhD at University Paris 1. As a picture book creator, I would like to talk about comfort in the minds of adults, that is, the “child” inside. The story is about not having to be perfect, not needing to be admitted, and teaches readers that they are precious even if they are controlled by feelings that are not reasonable. I want to continue working on such picture books for children who are learning negative emotions and parents can be reminded of these lessons themselves by reading my picture books as well.
