Born in Hong Kong in 1977, Eugenie immigrated to the US in 1995 at the age of 17. Shortly before earning her BFA in June 2001, she was awarded the Research and Creative Opportunity Grants for Undergraduates from Western Washington University in Bellingham, Washington. Returning to an urban setting, after living in rural and suburban American cities for 7 years, Eugenie began her studies at Brooklyn College, CUNY in 2002, where she earned a MFA Degree in 2004 and became one of 10 recipients for the Joan Mitchell Foundation 2004 MFA grant. Since 2000, her artworks have been shown in Seattle, Washington; Portland, Oregon; San Diego; Madison, Wisconsin; Burlington, Vermont; Summit, New Jersey; New York City; Berlin, Germany; Amsterdam, The Netherlands; and in the January 2003 issue of New American Paintings. In 2007, Eugenie’s work was shown at the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum for a group show, The Photograph as Canvas, and have completed her first public art project, 16 Windows, at the New Lots Avenue Station on the L line, commissioned by the New York MTA Arts for Transit Program Permanent Art projects, which was featured in the 12/27/07 edition of New York Sun and the book Contemporary Glass.

Recently, Eugenie was commissioned by the New York City Department of Transportation’s Urban Art Program to complete a temporary public art project located in Brooklyn, NY.
