ARTIST STATEMENT

 

I'm a trained musician, educated in Taiwan, US and UK.  Although my background is in music, I learn to see the world in a different way.  That's why I chose photography, I want to guide the audience to see the world from another angle.

 

When the world is shut down during the COVID-19 pandemic, I believe there's still beauty around us.  Whether it's just as simple as daily life, or the glorious nature.  It's time to slow down our paths, and to reconnect with the world we've been living in.

 

When I perform on stage, composing a new piece of music, or lecturing to my audience, it's about empowering and sharing.  Also, to infuse my ideas into creation.  Lately, I've obtained the certificate of Perfume and Craftsmanship, which I created a few perfumes with musical ideas, which tell the stories of great repertoires.  It's my passion to share that creativities don't lie in just one discipline, that's why I try to branch out to different genres, and of course now, to photography.
