Also known as “White Lotus” (the English meaning of her given name, Bạch Liên) she has won several awards for her artworks, which have since been collected by the Vietnam Fine Art Museum, as well as by collectors from several countries around the world.

In addition to printmaking, Bach Lien also creates digital art, and in addition uses photography as a medium of her artistic expression.
