Kyung Eun Lee graduated with a master's degree from Rhode Island School of Design in Global Arts and Cultures. She also has a bachelor's degree from UC Berkeley in Art. After graduating from the University of California, Berkeley, Kyung Eun worked as a museum educator at the Museum of Children's Arts, researching and planning for new programs such as field trips, art parties, and open studios. Kyung Eun also worked at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco to support public programs, contributing to the growth of innovative programs that inspire audiences and expand upon the exhibition's themes like Gauguin: A Spiritual Journey and Contemporary Muslim Fashions. Through art, she has the ambition to develop a platform that would serve as a center of communication and change. Furthermore, by raising awareness of the prevailing community's challenges, Kyung Eun would like to shed light on unrecognized values and marginalized perspectives.
