Miae Cho was born and raised in Seoul, Korea, where she earned a masters degree in music.  An accomplished soprano, she performed all over the world, including a performance at Carnegie Hall.
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 its kind.
In 1993, after her last concert tour of the U.S., she decided to take residence in Boston, MA.
After moving to the USA, She studied at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Masschusette College of Art, as well as Les Beaux-arts de Paris, France. She is a juried artist member of the Cambridge Art Association in MA, USA, and she was represented by Galatea Fine Art in Boston.  She is a juried artist member of L’association internationale des arts plastiques auprès de l’UNESCO-'AIAP' in Monaco, as well as an Artist member at OGA group in Monaco. 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.

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

[EXCERPTS FROM GALLERY OWNERS]
 
*** 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."
