Lilith Ohannessian is a Canadian artist who was born in Yerevan, Armenia. She immigrated to Montreal, Canada, at the age of 20 where she continued her studies in biology and received a Bachelor of Science degree Concordia University. In 1986 she graduated from Concordia University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Studio Art.

The opportunity to study sumi-e, or Japanese brush painting, came when she met and studied with the noted artist Tomoko Kodama, whose breathing brush method opened new means of self-expression.

Health challenges has lead her to other Eastern philosophies and practices in addition to sumi-e, such as Tai Chi, Taoism and Zen Buddhism.

Her paintings are in sumi-e style, based on classic Chinese and Japanese calligraphic strokes. She uses spare, suggestive outlines and shades to emphasize the contrasts between dark and light -  yin and yang energies.
