Born in Ireland in 2000, Antonia started piano at the age of five, studying with the Chinese Pianist Li Qi in China. After moving from Guangzhou, China back to Ireland in 2013, she studied first with Deirdre Doyle, and then with Hugh Tinney at the Royal Irish Academy of Music (RIAM). Antonia is a multiple prizewinner at the Feis Ceoil, having won the Senior Concerto (Harty) and Recital (Heneghan) cups amongst others, she was the winner of the Teissier Award of €7500 in RIAM in 2017.

In 2018, Antonia gave a solo recital in the National Gallery of Ireland, performed Prokofiev Piano Concerto No.3 with the Vratza Philharmonic Orchestra in Bulgaria, and was one of the six Irish pianists selected for the Dublin International Piano Competition. That same year, she received offers from Princeton University, Cambridge University and Imperial College London, as well as the Royal Academy of Music in London. She is currently a second-year Engineering student at Trinity College, Cambridge, where she was the winner of the Edith Leigh piano award in 2019, and she gave a full-length solo recital in the Trinity College Chapel.
