Yasuko’s style is inspired by girl’s Manga, Kirie and also through her experience designing stationary for the letterpress process. Mixing manual mediums such as hand drawings and the antique letterpress printing method with digital paintings creates a feel of modern yet classical art. Her passion for drawing was cultivated in Japan where she grew up, and she is still living strongly with it in the US, finding inspiration in mythical creatures, fairy tales, Venetian masks, dolls, costume design, Ballet and Japanese textiles. She strives to use these motifs as poetic storytellers within her visual world.
