Art show-Part One

In light of the fact that I could not take any pictures (at the exhibitor's request) at the recent Spring Art show, I will bring you one artist a day, starting with Kana Handel.

Don't you just love the simplicity and innocence her paintings portray.
Kana, originally from Tokyo, is a graphic artist and freelance illustrator, particularly for publishing firms that specialize in children's issues.
Kana states that she "believes we all still have a beautiful child's heart inside of us, even if we are grownups. When people look at my work and I see their eyes shining like a child's, it makes me very happy." Primarily working in arcylic gouache and sumi-e (ink painting), on washi paper, the results speak for themselves.

  1. These are happy, curious pieces. Kind of like two children I know quite well!
