Sunny was born in Bangkok, Thailand. She currently lives and works in New York City.

Sunny received her MA in arts administration at Columbia University and completed her BFA in film and photography from Ithaca College.

Sunny works primarily with photography, text, and video to explore storytelling, placemaking, memory, and superstition, and personal family history. In 2018, as part of her residency at rehearsal, she expanded her practice to include a discussion-based workshop on handwriting, signature, and family superstition.

Outside of her art practice, she works at a strategy consulting firm that works with arts and culture non-profits in the U.S.

She will have new video work in SculptureCenter’s 2021 In Practice exhibition.
