This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Singapore, Su-en Wong is a painter in realist style depicting young female figures, usually posed erotically.  She lives in Brooklyn New York, having left Singapore in 1989.  As a young woman she early had career goals, first as a ballerina and then as a performing pianist.    However, stage fright deterred her, and her love of painting and drawing and interest in the psychology of young women caused her to dedicate herself to art.

With her images of pre-adolescent girls, she explores what she describes as "the ambiguous nature of the transition between childhood and adulthood" and her own experiences "of breaking away from obscurity".  She addresses western stereotypes of Asian girls as being objects to satisfy erotic desires and the conflict within the girls of people's expectations and their own inner desires. 

She writes: "My drawings render a very private and deeply personal paradise, and provide a haven in which to explore the conflicting contexts (and very precious couplings) of power and vulnerability, of fear and desire, of assimilation and individuality, drive and repression, fantasy and reality, predators and prey, public persona and the private being, and of good and evil.

In 2005, the Aldrich Museum in Ridgefield, Connecticut held an exhibition of her work titled "Contemporary Erotic Drawing".
