I am based in Annan, Ontario. With expressive brushstrokes, I aim to capture the beauty of nature via ink on rice paper or silk and using acrylic on canvas.  An avid gardener and collector of peony varieties, these along with plant species native to Grey Bruce, birds, local landscapes are among my favorite painting subjects.


We host an annual open house to the garden oasis, “Gingko Footprints”, that my husband and I have been cultivating for about thirteen years.

I first delved into Ink Washing (Chinese brush painting) in 2009. I work in the two primary styles of traditional brushwork, Freehand (Xieyi), which is loose and expressive and the Meticulous (Gongbi) style, which is highly detailed. While Chinese brush painting has been a mainstay in my life and is central to my aesthetic, I have also delved into acrylics and other art styles under the guidance of local instructors in recently years.

I am a permanent member of the Owen Sound Artists Co-op , Southampton Arts and continue to exhibit my works in other venues across Grey Bruce, sharing my passion for art and gardening with the community.                              -Emily Bi
