Alumni Spotlight

Violet Kim ’17


Violet SoHyun Kim came to The Master’s School from Korea as a grade seven student. Her brother Do was currently a student at Master’s, so it was natural that Violet would attend as well. The pastor of their church was the person who recommended the family to The Master’s School; he was also their initial host family.
 
During Violet’s years in Middle School, she was greatly involved in helping with events whenever she could. She prepared refreshment during the school’s annual Art Show; she was always willing and eager to assist where she could.
 
Violet always enjoyed art ‘as a hobby’ and never anticipated this would become her vocation in the future. It was when she entered high school and had Jim DeCesare as her art teacher when this hobby became her passion. Jim encouraged and opened doors for Violet to be free to express herself and, ultimately, compile her portfolio to apply to art school. Violet completed both her junior and senior year at The Master’s School in one year so she could graduate early and move on to college to pursue her gifting. When she was accepted to Parsons School of Design in New York, Violet was on to new discoveries in the city.
 
Violet stated that in her freshman year at Parsons, she worked with media such as wood and plaster. Her sophomore year at Parsons was devoted to fashion design. Violet excelled in this area, but eventually discovered that fashion design was not the direction she wanted to go. During her time at Parsons, she traveled to Florence and Paris where she studied technique—leather in Florence and embroidery in Paris. She was exploring and finding her niche. After taking a year off to go home, refresh, and determine the path she should go, Violet returned to Parsons and graduated with a Fashion Design BFA in May 2021.
 
Violet shared that she was going through some hard times when she first came to The Master’s School, and she was looking for God to show himself and reaffirm her belief. The people—friends she made, faculty, staff and students--the environment, Bible class, Chapels and worship uplifted her daily. Pastor Leroy Case, Mina Deckert, and Big Sam were three major influences in her life. God was evident all around her at The Master’s School; it was clear that this was the place for Violet to grow in her faith and in other ways she couldn’t possibly imagine.
 
Violet currently resides in New Jersey and commutes into New York where she works for New York Embroidery Studio doing custom, hand embroidery. Embroidery is her first passion. She loves the hands on and the intricacy required of each order, knowing that every item she embroiders is unique and special to the customer. In addition to her work, Violet leads a Bible study through her church for college students.
 
As of this writing, Violet has been with New York Embroidery Studio for four months, and she will be going to LA soon to work on orders there.  To view some of Violet’s work and designs, visit her website www.so-violet.com or check her out on Instagram @so_violet.official. Her work is amazing!
