Born 1962 in Auckland, Mylene moved to Australia at age two. She often stays in India. Her art was an expression of visions. She often imagined beautiful people who live on the moon. These mysteriously beautiful people often appear in her paintings. Self-trained, she developed a unique style direction. Traveling, she marveled at the statues and buildings of France. Later she frequented Singapore, Malaysia and India--whose cultures appeared in her art. As one art analyst said, "She draws on symbolism from Asian and European cultures, yet retains her own."

Mylene has remained quite private over the years with her art. Mostly private collectors have acquired her works. In 2007 Puan Ratna Siti Akbari, curator of the Petronas Gallery in Kuala Lumpur, appreciated Mylene's art. Subsequently Mylene exhibited her painting "Melbourne Dream II" in "Her Presence in Colours VIII," National Gallery of China, Beijing (2007), and her painting  "Beauty of Malaysia" in the exhibition "100 Excellent Artists," Penang Town Hall, 2009.
