Mimi Zhang-Mackie was born in Jinan, Shandong Province of China. She graduated from Jinan Technical Art School. Mimi moved to Canada in 1999, where she met her husband. Together they settled in the Peace Country and began raising their family.
Mimi’s favorite medium is watercolor. She uses the unpredictability of the medium to her advantage, to create artworks that flow and have a magical quality. She also draws in graphite realism. Mimi is a gifted art instructor and has taught many Peace Country students to draw.

Absolutely love your watercolours. I am yearning to learn and will be returning to the Peace Country soon. Do you give workshops?
Hi, glad to hear that you enjoy my watercolors, thank you! Watercolour is a such fantastic medium! Sooooo much fun….I have been busy for couple of shows in September, and hopefully will organize a watercolour workshop in the fall. We will keep in touch. Thank you again! Mimi
We just saw your work collection at the center for creative arts and love your watercolour paintings! Do you teach watercolour painting or even chinese art calligraphy? I love watercolour myself and do it with my daughter at home in our free time. Would love to know more!
