Profile | Guitarist | Photographer/ 1X Grade 5 Curator | Oil painter

Heavy Metal Guitarist

Qualification: Piano teacher

At the age of five, Angel Julie started learning organs and at the age of seven she began learning piano.
She has been playing the piano for about 20 years, becoming a piano teacher in her teens.
Graduated from a junior college piano major.

She started playing in a band when she was 15 years old, but in a year she was frustrated and changed to a drummer, but she love for guitars remained the same.

Played drums in a copy band of hard rock and heavy metal bands, including Queen, Rainbow and Iron Maiden, etc.
For the first time at the age of 18, she heard Yngwie Malmsteen‘s guitar sounds from the radio and loved at first listening.
She was fascinated by the world of beautiful and sublime sounds.
Since then Angel Julie has loved and respected Yngwie Malmsteen.

After that, when she realized her dream of becoming a painter, she resumed playing the guitar she wanted to do most.
Since 2012, she has released her original songs and since 2013 has been a soloist as a guitarist.

On 11th Nov.2015, she bought a YJM Strat signature model fender guitar by mysterious guidance.
After that, various experiences led the guitarist to recognize it as her soul work.
Moreover the photographer too.

She has been doing music activities with the concept “Feel the Light” since 2015, and she started Chapter 3 of “Relief and Rebirth of the Soul” since November 11, 2021.
Chapter 3 is what she learned from her own experience.
It attempts the first chapter with a different approach and moreover continues the second chapter.

What I am doing is not something that can be easily done with just a moment of energy healing or meditation or only imagination.
I am devoting myself to the production, and I spend a lot of effort and time.
It’s my life.

The concept is “Relief and Rebirth of the Soul”.
In the first chapter,
By focussing collectively and unconsciously, Trying to salvage and regenerate the soul in a way to activate collective consciousness.
I had been trying to create empathy. That means Release from loneliness.

・ 2000-2016, Chapter 1
Alchemy:From ‘Darkness of the Heart’ to ‘Transformation‘ then ‘Awakening‘:
Both in Japan and overseas, She had exhibited paintings expressed the scenes that she has seen from the eyes of the heart with the technique of surrealism from Depths to Transformation and Awakening.

In the second chapter,
Rosarium of Philosophers Project
Feel the Light
【Light=divine love: Great nature, Sanctuary of the soul】

Since 2018, She has been producing and announcing fine art photography, monochrome and color and short films, based on the concept of Chapter 2 “Feel the Light (Divine Love)”.

Crystal healing that images light and colors with the heart is the trigger, and the method of expressing colors that she had been searching for before has arrived at something that expresses the illusion of light using photographs, not paints.

Light refers to the light of God and the energy of love.

Currently She strives every day to reach heights in all aspects of technology, art, and culture, and she has announced Fine Art Photography.
In addition has announced Short films since 2020.
[Music videos since 2013]

My concept has been ‘Relief and Rebirth of the Soul’ since 2000.
