Statement
Born in Hong Kong in 1977, Eugenie immigrated to United States at the age of 17, and lived with her aunt in eastern Washington for six months. Despite being the daughter of a professional artist and a successful screenwriter, Eugenie was never known to be a high-achiever. In the Hong Kong education system she failed her 10th grade art classes, and was later expelled from Kamiakan HS in Kennewick, WA. She enrolled in Western Washington University in 1999 and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in 2001. She then moved to New York and earned a Master of Fine Arts Degree at the Brooklyn College, City University of New York in 2004, where she was awarded a teaching position for a Basic Design Course. She was also among one of the 10 recipients for the 2004 Joan Mitchell MFA Grant and is currently the Head Teacher for a Drawing and Painting Studio course organized by the Joan Mitchell Foundation Education Program. In late 2005, Eugenie has been chosen by the MTA Arts for Transit Program to create a permanent artwork in faceted glass on the Canarsie (L) Line, New Lots Avenue subway station platform, installed in September 2007. Also in 2007, Eugenie’s work will be on view at the Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art for a group exhibition, the Photograph as Canvas, curated by Stephen Maine.
