She graduated from CAFA, the Central Academy of Fine Art in 1984, in woodblock printing, before migrating to Australia in 1987, where she undertook studies at the then COFA, the College of Fine Art, the University of NSW, and subsequently graduated with a MASTERS of FINE ART Degree from Sydney College of Art in 2007.
