Myong came to the United States to pursue a degree in Fashion Design at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. From this background, she became a couture seamstress for years in Andover, Massachusetts, making custom gowns for weddings and costume design. In the early 1990s, she discovered and fell in love with hand building her own clay work. Since the, she has produced her own original pieces influenced by 18th Century European porcelain with china paint.

In 2009, Myong was an artist in residence at the Youngeun Museum of Contemporary Art in Korea, where she shared her creations while experimenting with traditional Korean techniques of ceramics.

An avid mountain climber who is constantly inspired by the bounty and the beauty of nature, Myong continues to build each piece by hand in her current studio at Western Avenue by the Merrimack River in Lowell, Massachusetts. Her porcelain pieces are influenced by the technique of 18th Century Meissen European porcelain. Each collectable is hand-built and hand-painted. Once formed, each hard paste porcelain object is fired 5-7 times in a kiln. Then, they are brought to life with the finest of enamel colors.
