About: Violinist to Artist

Every artist dips his brush in his soul and paints his own nature into his paintings. - Henry Ward Beecher

Before my painting career, I have been a concert violinist all my youth.  Communicating with audience through my art is very important to me as it was in music. Wildlife is the subject that fascinates me. I only want to express love song in my painting to praise the beauty of nature. Depending on the mood and character of the painting, medium is chosen between watercolor and oil. 

I’ve traveled to beautiful cities around the world to perform in concerts and share my passion. While I was earning multiple degrees from prestigious schools in Europe and the United States, I have worked with many renowned artists and scholars in various fields. In addition, the most awakening experience was teaching underprivileged students and performing for people who were suffering from terminal diseases. I believe in the healing power of music and art because I have seen the positive changes it can make in people.

Even though classical music has been my heart and soul, I’ve made a decision to leave my career as a violinist and become an artist.  But the truth is, I’ve never left one to be the other. I always loved both ever since I was little and I have always been painting throughout my life. I’ve always played music dreaming the most beautiful paintings, and I’ve been always painting the most colorful music on canvas.

How I grew up, what I have learned and experienced, what I have achieved as a musician and a scholar, my talent, passion and ability to express in the form of art…  I believe all these make me who I am as an artist and reflect in my art.
