 About me....

Adopting a Jindo has changed my life!

"Jindotales was created after adopting my first Korean Jindo dog, "Kabbe" a.k.a. "Gabbey" from Koreatown, in Los Angeles.  It is a forum where Jindo owners can share their adoption experiences in hopes of inspiring others to do the same.  "Jindo and the Moon" is the first book in my children's series and I truly hope you enjoy sharing it with your family." ~ Helen T. Kim​

San Diego Mural projects and Volunteer work

Being a volunteer has been one of the most  rewarding experiences of my life. It has allowed me the opportunity to meet a variety of like minded individuals, who are dedicated to serving our community. 
The San Diego River Park Foundation has been working to preserve and protect the delicate ecosystem of the San Diego River for over 20 years.  Being a part of their River Murals project has allowed me to learn about local flora and fauna and implement the spirit of environmental conservation into my local community.  I will be forever grateful for the many opportunities that have allowed my art to become a permanent part of the San Diego landscape.
