After living in Malaysia to conduct her Fine Art Diploma, she relocated to London to further pursue fine art at Goldsmiths, University of London and an MA in Fine Art from Chelsea College, University of Arts London.

Her practice is underpinned by an interest in trade, empire, migration, borders, and citizenship. These themes are explored through a variety of mediums, paintings, soundscapes, installations, and textile interventions.
