ABOUT ME

“I am a night owl, sleep all day and work all night, wandering in the darkness” - An Tran

I was born in Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh City and pursued art studies in both Vietnam and the United Kingdom. I spent previous years to travel around the globe for my international practice, art residence and exhibitions. I mainly work with mixed media materials. I enjoy the process of making art and the psychological impacts lay underneath. Psychology and art, both majors enrich my knowledge, thus empower the works I am developing as a dance/movement therapist and a performance artist. I work with people in need of art/body movement, especially with children.

 

I am a professional member of Dance Movement Therapy Association of Australasia.
