An studied fine arts at the University of Waterloo and was tutored by Guatemalan artist Sergio A. Solorzano. As an Asian Canadian she uses her art to reflect on her immigrant identity and playfully rediscovers the world through her children’s eyes. Her paintings have been featured in local galleries, restaurants and public venues throughout Ottawa, Ontario, where she currently resides. Her paintings have also appeared on CD album covers for Canadian and international musicians. An was born in Saigon, Vietnam, and was part of Canada’s response to the refugee crisis post-Vietnam War. She is the mother of twins, and is married to a jazz musician.
