Ms. Nam has been actively painting since she was 15. As a student she won the first prize in a national competition which resulted in her receiving a full scholarship to study art in university. In 2008 Ms. Nam held two exhibitions, “To Kenya” and “Bible painting”; in 2012 she held “London Stories” a collection of paintings of the United Kingdom and Ireland after her travels.
Ms. Nam has exhibited her paintings in over 100 group exhibitions.
