No rough draft, one attempt only. The beauty of calligraphy art through brushstrokes.
I got my start when I painted the menus and POPs for the Okinawa cuisine restaurant that my husband and I run together. Since then I create logo designs for original shop products, kanji art, and publish the "Ishigaki-shima News" which is written with a single brush by hand. Through all of this I hope to attract people to the beauty of calligraphy. On Ishigaki-shima, I receive inspiration from the seas, the sun, the fruits and vegetables, the vivid color combinations in nature, and I want to continue to take on the challenge of "working in words."
