I was happy when asked to contribute some of my artworks for a special, "Art For Surfers" edition of Blue Magazine in Japan. It is a leading surf magazine in Japan.
I had the pleasure of attending for the 1st the time the Greenroom Festival in Yokohama, Japan this May, 2012 with my photographer husband, Kevin Roche. I got to meet so many wonderful new friends/fans and to share my unique oil & encaustic (wax) collages with so many people. I also had a chance to debut my new limited edition hand glassed/resined collages on wood panel. These images were very popular at the Greenroom Festival.
We had such a wonderful time visiting Japan, and fell in love with the country, the culture, the fashion, food, towns like Kamakura, and most of all it's people. We also had the pleasure of getting to know talented fellow artists, shapers and illustrators better too. I had my artwork also in the debut edition of Honey Magazine and got to attend the launch party at Ron Herman, Tokyo, Japan. The dividends from our Japan visit keep coming, and we hope to return one day soon.
Here's a few shots from this newest issue of, "Blue Magazine", "Art For Surfers" issue, Japan. Arigato Blue Mag!
