Presenter in 2021 International AAAProfessional Development Conference Poetry

Would you like to know about my storyboard, how I developed images and character design of Basho, a Japanese haiku poet and the heart warming encounter of the children? Join our Conference Poetry, 2021 International AAAProfessional Development Conference Poetry. Great honour and joy. I’m included in the speakers and grateful for CBCA NSW and author Libby Hathorn, “We Children and the Narrow Road to North.”

I’m the traditional illustrator and the craft woman publisher Helen Chamberlin called. Libby and I will chat over our creating journey!  

Thank you for cheers, Friends!!

Salt Use, Snow, Fishes

Wow, I painted Japanese old houses in snow and a fish and squads for the first time in life. Fishes become brilliant subjects, do you know? A prominent watercolourist Yuko Nagayama showed how to use salt and its special effect. Salt produces an interesting texture, a diamond like mark. The snow landscape is below. 

The workshop was a great fun, although very busy to finish them up in the short time or the class. It’s a good idea to explore our daily matters and find good subjects. 

Friends, Happy Painting. Take care and stay safe in the pandemic.

Rain, evening fall on streets

An evening and rain fell on a street. Lovely to watch changing colours, lights and reflection. A night scene is very challenging and interesting, but fun! I'll explore washes in watercolour in 2021. Friends, stay safe. Let's enjoy watercolour painting more than ever!

Monarch Butterflies I saw

My first doodle! Three Monarch butterflies I saw yesterday in the preservation area with milkweedsThey showed me joyful dancing and dating. Monarch butterflies are not Australian natives that arrived in Australia from North America in 1871. Quite a big gorgeous lady, 7-9cm surprised me. I'm exploring subjects around myself in the pandemic. “Life” is my most favourite and precious theme. Friends, let's enjoy our ordinary subjects and turn them into extraordinary.
