Lily was born in 1972 and grew up through colonial Hong Kong. She was a fashion model before getting working in advertising campaigns. Together, these experiences nurtured an aesthetic sense that melded culture from the East & West. Lily is a self-taught photographer, beginning with taking snapshots in her working environment and working alongside professional photographers.
Having created several works that drew attention locally, Lily became a full-time visual artist in 2016. She amalgamates topics such as history, literature, feminism and life, using images that are poetic and ingenuous. Her media of choice are photography, video and installation.
She graduated from RMIT University, Bachelor of Arts (Fine Art) with Distinction in 2018. Her graduate work, “Eileen Chang: Tierce of Life”, was conferred the WMA Lens-based Art Award.
