Gi Myao is a painter and illustrator living in London.
Born into a military background family. Her father is an Admiral of the Navy and both grandparents are Second World War heroes. Gi started drawing at age 4. The following year, she made an outstanding impression during a professional drawing class and became the youngest girl to ever enrol there. Her childhood was spent in Asia and Europe where she was educated and trained at exquisite primary and secondary art schools, taught by prestigious professional artists. Drawing everyday and wouldn't go anywhere without a sketchbook.
