About Me

Hello, my name is Soomin Oh. I also go by Somina or Soojadeart. I am a first-generation Korean-Canadian artist based in Vancouver, Canada.

I attended and graduated from Emily Carr University's Illustration BFA program in 2021. I love games, gaming, and creating games. I wish to use my artistic talents in order to create immersive worlds and stories that anyone could enjoy.

I have experience with visual development, as well as illustrating environments, characters, and assets!

If I'm not drawing (or gaming) I may be found reading, singing, or playing with my dogs!
