Ping Yan started to learn drawing and painting at a very early age and working in a wide variety of mediums including Chinese brush painting, watercolor, oil, acrylic, pastel, colored pencil, and pen sketch. Ping enjoys creating portraits, cartoon, flowers and landscapes.

Ping's artworks involve an extensive area of subject matters and styles from oriental to impressionism, light to dark values.

Chinese painting is one of the oldest continuous artistic traditions in the world. Compared to other genres, freehand brush work is more random, because it does not pay too much attention on the similarity. The essence of freehand brush work grasps the most obvious or essential spiritual characteristics. This character makes it a genre that is both easiest and most difficult. Her brush painting work shown the painter must work with speed, pitch, liveliness, confidence, and technical mastery, infusing spiritual energy into the brushstrokes.

One of ping's favorite art subjects is peony. Regarded as one of the most exquisite flowers in Chinese culture, the peony is a symbol for nobility, value and beauty. Peony in full bloom represents prosperity and peace and will bring good fortune and success to people.

She has entered pieces in art shows and solo art show and has won the first place award in one of the art shows. She also published a book as an illustrator and some artworks in magazines. She is also enjoying teaching art to the adults and children. Her students from the kid's art class had won a lot of art awards in the art contests. She has been invited to demo her Chinese brush painting and do portrait sketches in many art fairs and events.

The action of creating artworks enriched her life and provided her with both physical and mental relaxation. She believes that Qigong and the way of Chinese brush painting has something in common: breathe management, physical exercise and mental focus.
