our team 

Jenny Eom is an interdisciplinary artist who creates discursive platforms that hold (and are held by) bodies, inquiries, communities and multiplicity. Prior to earning her MFA degree in Art at CalArts, she had two major career lives: one as a video producer in which she worked with global companies such as Netflix, SM Entertainment, JYP, Samsung, and Hyundai and the other at an art consulting firm where she organized art tours and educational art programs for art enthusiasts, field professionals and VIPs at international art fairs, department stores, and corporate headquarters. She received a full-ride scholarship from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts while pursuing her BFA in Photography & Imaging along with two minors in Studio Art and Media, Culture & Communications. 

Jisoo Chung is an LA-Seoul based artist working primarily through video, installation and performance. Influenced by the failure of technology such as linguistic mistranslations and cultural misinterpretations, Chung uses these failures as a blueprint to playfully subvert the occupied systems. Chung received her MFA from UCLA in Art (New Generes) and BFA from Seoul National University in the Department of Painting. In 2017, she was nominated as Artslant Prize Showcase Winner in the New Media category and in 2019, was commissioned by Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation for the New Digital Cips Project.

Monica Kim has been an art educator since the 1980’s, when she was just a high school student. She studied Sculpture in undergrad and Art Education in graduate school, both at Seoul National University. She had a successful career as a young artist in Seoul building monuments for various institutions while running an after school art program that had over 70 students but decided to immigrate to the United States in 1999 to continue her studies in Art Education with Dr. Carol Jeffers at CSULA. She continued to teach art in Los Angeles until she found a new passion for cosmetic dentistry and became a Master Ceramist. After many years of another successful career, she is now retired and in development for her own ceramics brand.

He is a recent Emerging Artist Grant nominee of the Rema Hort Mann Foundation and for the past 3 years, he has been working with artist Shirley Tse as the Production Director for her exhibitions at the Venice Biennale and the M+ Museum in Hong Kong. He also runs a custom furniture and spatial design studio called Sawdust Donut.

Woohee Cho is an interdisciplinary artist working with video installation and performance. His identities and living environment merged and clashed with each other, which inspired him and gave him a deeper understanding of self-identification. Cho’s work usually stems from his personal experiences and aims to expose and queer the structural irony of patriarchal, heterosexual norms. His body, functioning as the active agent, material, and medium of his artwork, is put into discomfort and trauma within the work and serves as the playground / battleground for discourse. Cho received a BFA in Graphic Design from Seoul National University, and is an MFA from CalArts.

Ruoyi Shi is an interdisciplinary artist working with objects, writings, performances, and video installation.

In 2021, she received her MFA in Art from CalArts, where she worked as teaching assistant for the Foundation class and served as a mentor for the Community Arts Partnership program.

Anais Franco is the creator of studio sachi. The two intermingle – creating ideas of looping that manifest into ceramic design objects. For Franco, looping, persistence, and cycles are modes of thinking that help piece ideas together. As a way of introducing image-making and storytelling, Franco uses motifs and patterns to transform symbols into site specific meaning. With her interest in archiving and story telling, Anais likes to bring techniques from lost times, back into the classroom and primarily teaches through different drawing methods.  She holds a BFA in Art from CalArts. 

Coffee Kang is a conceptual visual artist based in Los Angeles. Working with an expansive range of media, including photography, performance, sculpture, and installation, Kang welcomes the unknown during the process of making and embeds the performative and the temporal to be part of the work. As a queer, a visa holder, an artist of color, and a metaphorically “unhoused” body that is always caught in between identities and cultures, she reflects a sense of loss and longing, and a state of fluctuation in a larger social and cultural context. Kang holds a BA in Creative Media from the City University of Hong Kong (2016), and an MFA in Photo and Media from the California Institute of the Arts (2018).

about us


Drawwing Cabinet is an artist-run educational studio in La Crescenta, CA. We bring together past, present, and future artists by creating opportunities for learning and sharing of skills, ideas, and resources. We believe in the power of experimentation and creative freedom but most importantly, in the generosity of art.

We offer regular classes for K–12 students (future artists) with varying degrees of experience in art, artist-run workshops where (present) artists can sustain their own practices by teaching and learning from one another, and programs for adults with unrealized passion for art (past artists). Our educational endeavor is to build a pluralistic platform where a multitude of creative thinkers intersect and continue to mutually inspire and support one another.
