A New Zealander by birth, Sylvia Fraser-Lu graduated from Otago University and spent many years as an educator in a variety of teaching and administrative positions in East and Southeast Asia.

Her growing interest in Asian arts and crafts led her to begin writing articles for Arts of Asia and reviews for Oriental Art in the late 70's and early 80's. Books for Oxford Press soon followed such as Indonesian Batik: Patterns Processes and Places (1986), Hand Woven Textiles of South-East Asia (1988), and Silverware of South-East Asia (1989). She also served as series advisor to Oxford University's Images of Asia.

Upon her husband's retirement to the United States, Khun Sylvia served as Program Assistant at the Asia Society's Washington Center.  In recent years she has turned her attention to Burma with publications such as Burmese Lacquerware (Orchid Press, 1985 and 2000, Bangkok) and Burmese Crafts: Past and Present (Oxford Press 1993, Singapore, and Splendour in Wood: The Buddhist Monasteries of Burma (Orchid Press, 2001).
