My Le Thi is a Vietnamese-Australian singer, musician and artist. Born in Buon Ma Thout, South Vietnam in 1964, she migrated to Australia in late 1985 and settled in Brisbane. My Le Thi was encouraged to pursuit art by the manager of a woman’s shelter and she enrolled to study drawing at university. My Li Thi works across new media and explores themes of loss, survival and renewal.
