Thank you very much for looking at my painting. I’m a Japanese artist living in the UK. I create illustrations using a variety of ink and watercolour on finest quality paper.

This is a limited print of my original work
‘Japanese Kimono Girl with a Temari’.
This piece depicts a Japanese girl wearing a beautiful black silk kimono (furisode) for Coming of Age Day in January.  A silk embroidered temari ball is next to the girl’s foot.
Coming of Age Day celebrates the beginning of adulthood in Japan (turning 20 years of age).  Furisode is a long-sleeved kimono worn by unmarried women in Japan.
*Frame is not included.
It’s printed on 5×7″ premium glossy photo paper and protected in a clear plastic sleeve.(Signed and numbered on the back.)

Cusotom Japanese Calligraphy ‘Your Name in Japanese’

I usually don’t watch Japanese TV dramas, but because it seemed like everyone in Japan was talking about it I started watching it as well.  It’s called ‘Kaseifu no Mita’, and it means, ‘Mita, The Housekeeper’.   I got sucked into this strange story so easily,  and the episode 10 was just aired yesterday (Wednesday) in Japan.  (I just watched it on the internet!)  The episode 11 is the finale, and I don’t know what to do after it finishes next week as it’s been my weekly enjoyment, sob..!!

Changing the subject, I put up two calligraphy pieces I did for my customer in my last post, and here is another piece which I did most recently for a lovely gentleman in Turkey!

I handbrushed his Turkish name in Japanese katakana letters on A5 size (half size of A4) white card and carefully decorated it with fine gold colour outline stickers.  (Probably it’s hard to see the gold outline stickers in the image.)   Then I mounted it on A4 size (210mm x 297mm / 8.3″ x 11.7″) black card, so you’ll just need to prepaer an A4 size frame to pop it in!  The item is called ‘Your Name in Japanese’, and you can order it here↓

I will use quality Japanese sumi ink and calligraphy brushes to create your piece.  I will wrap your piece in a plastic sleeve and send it in a hardback envelope 🙂

Thanks for reading!
