Emily Bi is based in Annan, Ontario. With expressive brushstrokes, Emily depicts the beauty of nature via ink on rice paper or silk and using acrylic on canvas.  An avid gardener and collector of peony and hosta species, these along with plant species native to Grey Bruce, local landscapes are among her favorite painting subjects.

 

Emily first delved into Ink Washing (Chinese brush painting) in 2009. She works 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 her life and is central to her aesthetic, she has also delved into acrylics as a Studio XX member in recently years.

Emily is a permanent member of the Owen Sound Artists Co-op , Southampton Arts and continues to exhibit her works in other venues across Grey Bruce, sharing her passion for art and gardening with the community. She was honored as an artist at Tom Thomson Art Gallery Community Artist Spotlight in Nov 2021.
