Artist Statement: I have a deep appreciation for piano and took lessons when I was young. I also love art, which allows me to express myself being the only child. During the time of pandemic, it gave me a reason to spend more time in my garden with my succulents. Succulents inspire me with their amazing colors, variety of shapes, and how they are resilient and well adapted to their environment. They remind us that even in difficult circumstances, we could still thrive and flourish. In my design for Sing for Hope Piano, I want to share positivity and beauty on things that I am passionate about with the public. In supporting Sing for Hope’s mission, I too believe combining music and art is a brilliant idea to connect, to heal, and to bring people together.
