Karin Kyung Lim was adopted at age 2 1/2 to a family in upstate New York. She worked for a number of years as a school social worker and art therapist, before embarking on a dream to pursue a career in Korea. Her training in art therapy had a profound personal impact towards healing, helping to process early experiences of loss/abandonment, and prompted a desire to share the power of arts with others. In 2007, she moved to Seoul, Korea, to explore her roots and do art therapy with Korean children from the same orphanage where she once lived. She currently holds art therapy classes with Korean children growing up in institutions, as well as, with adult Korean adoptees.
