In addition to her degrees in English Literature, Christian Education, and Linguistics, Aichen Ho has studied Chinese Painting, ceramics and many other subjects in the arts. We knew her best from her photography studies at College of DuPage. Her works were exhibited at College of DuPage, Bloomingdale Park District Museum, Schaumburg Prairie Center for the Arts, the Chicago School of Professional Psychology and the Chinese Cultural Center, Westmont.
Aachen was known for her wonderful water lily images. Here is her Artist's Statement from her book "Water Lilies:"
"When a subject attracts my attention, I spend time to observe, feel and absorb untill it becomes part of me. As I photograph and print the image, I put myself back to the image, so it becomes mine. Then I hope my viewers would share my view and feeling when they see my work."
