Miae Cho was born and raised in Seoul, Korea, where she earned a master degree in music.  An accomplished soprano, she performed all over the world, including a sold out performance at Carnegie Hall. After moving to Boston, she soon discovered her real passion was art.  She began to develop her art skills, first in realism and then in abstract, which gave her the most freedom of expression.
She studied at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Mass Art as well as the prestigious Les Beaux-arts de Paris, France. She is a juried artist member of L’association internationale des arts plastiques auprès de l’UNESCO-'AIAP' in Monaco, an Artist member at OGA group in Monaco, and a juried artist member of  the Cambridge Art Association in MA, USA. She was represented by Galatea Fine Art in Boston. When you look at her abstracts you can sense how music has played such a big part in her art, each painting infused with a lyrical quality. Throughout the years, she has had numerous solo and group exhibitions. Her works have been exhibited all over the world, including London, Monaco, Seoul, New York, Hamburg and Boston.

[EXCERPTS FROM GALLERY OWNERS AND FRIENDS]

*** Miae Cho, born and grew up in Seoul, Korea. She studied vocal music and received a Master's degree in music.
She launched a career as a classical soprano, performing throughout Korea, Canada, and USA, with numerous media appearances and release of CD's in Korea and the U.S. On one U.S. tour, she was the solo artist for a standing-room-only performance at Carnegie Hall in 1993.
But then Miae's already-amazing journey took an even more amazing turn. After settling in Boston, she happened to meet artist Barbara Donnelly. She inspired her to take private lesson in watercolor.
Soon Miae realized that she had never been "free" as an opera singer.
"I found that my true passion was painting." she says. "It was freedom that was missing from my life-freedom from all the restrictions that I had experienced in the past to be a perfect condition...
"The show must go on" ... I wanted to be free from all of that. Free from my performances, my schedule, and everybody else's rules. I wanted to make my own rules, my own creations."                   
She began painting realistically, but shifted after a time. "I found that painting in an abstract transform nature into expressive abstractions."
She beams.
"So today, I work joyfully," she says, "in a world where there are no rules, no limitations, so plans."

*** She was born in Seoul, Korea in 1959.  She studied vocal music and received a Master's degree in music in 1991.  She became a very accomplished classical soprano and performed throughout Korea, Canada and the U.S.A.  During a tour of the United States she was the solo artist for a standing room only performance at Carnegie Hall in 1993.  She has appeared numerous times on radio and tv in Korea and the Korean Buddhist television network in NYC.  Her voice has been captured on a number of CD's in Korea and she arranged, produced and performed on her first U.S. CD titled 'Seoul Girl' in 1998.  In her follow up CD in 2005, titled 'Mantra', Ms. Cho arranged ancient Buddhist mantras to music and created the first album of it's kind. 
In 1993, after her last concert tour of the U.S., she decided to take residence in Boston, MA.  In a chance meeting with artist Barbara Donnelly, she decided to take some private lessons in water color.  It didn't take long for her to realize that her true passion was painting.  She continued study at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Mass Art, in Boston. 

Currently she spends most of her time painting in Boston and the south of France.
