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.

Accepted by Central Saint Martins aged 19. Graduated with First Class honours in Fashion Design. Winning the 'Nina De York Illustration Award' in the University of the Arts London. 

She began working as a fashion designer, print designer and sometimes brand consultant, until she decided to focus on fashion and style illustration working extensively for international magazines and fashion houses.

June 2010, her first solo fashion illustration exhibition was held at Harbour City, Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong.

Gi is now proud to be a working mum. This website was relaunched in September 2015. In the same month Gi also launched babies and kids online concept shop, Rocket Shop London.
