Artist Jenny (Chin Jung) Baham:
The Passion for Life

Born in 1969 in Taipei Taiwan, with her Computer Science degree background, Artist Jenny worked for the following global high-technology companies, Apple, SAS and Gartner, as an Account Manager more than a decade in Asia. One day in 2005, she felt unable to breathe, her heart almost stopped beating on her way home due to the stressful job. She went to the hospital and the doctor could not find anything wrong with her. And then the doctor told her: “If you do not want your job to kill you due to your stress, you need to balance your life…” That’s why she went through a Personal Enrichment program and signed up for a “Pencil Sketching” class to force herself to leave her job on time. The reason for choosing pencil sketching was because it’s easy to prepare, just pencils, an eraser and a piece of paper. However, she found her passion and it changed her life dramatically with the gift from God.

Jenny entered Master Jiun Pan Studios to refine her oil painting skills in 2008. Under great guidance and influence by Master Pan, Jenny has made a tremendous progress in her artworks. She improved her oil painting skills in smooth lines, mixing color accurately, speed control, and many other artistic procedures… etc. Her artworks often amazed people with her heavenly creation and her passion for life.

Due to her passion for art, Jenny visited many countries to enrich her understanding of different cultures. Because of upcoming exhibitions in the past, she had been interviewed by several media companies and radio programs about her artworks. She immigrated to the United States due to her marriage in 2013. In the same year, she had a charity exhibition in the Museum of Fine Art in Taiwan. Though she cannot flight back to Taiwan due to her wedding preparations, she hosted the opening through Skype in Las Vegas.

Furthermore, Jenny is an instructor of pencil sketching and oil painting at the College of Southern Nevada from 2014 to the present. She shares her experiences and gives her students professional guidance. Besides teaching at CSN, she is working on her current project, painting all the National Parks across the United States. Her purpose is to get all Americans to see this beautiful nation. Jenny’s art fully shows her enthusiasm for life, her positive and optimistic attitude continues to set a good example of this generation.
