This Sunday we celebrate the most important women in our lives, mothers.

For the occasion, I've created "Okasan" (Japanese for mom), a sweet image of a mom and her child with the Kanji symbol for the word mother.

I enjoy to paint in the minimalist style of Asian art. I like the elegance and the delicate lines yet strong visual, the finished piece always looks modern. The calligraphy is like a painting all of itself.

Okasan is available as print and as greeting card. I'm proud to say that they are printed by me at my studio, with a professional 8-ink color system using archival inks on archival fine art paper. 

The card is great for other occasions as well, such as a baby announcement, new moms, etc.
Both prints and cards can be found at my Etsy and Artfire stores.

To all the moms in the world; New moms, not-so-new, grandmas, moms-to-be... Enjoy your special day! 

Motherhood, it might be a once a year celebration, but hey, it's a lifetime commitment. We are thankful to our own mothers for that.

Happy Mother's Day!!



Ah, I love gadgets, I've always been interesting in technology and how the latest innovations can be applied to my art and improve my work practically and creatively.

I've been using a tablet and digital pen for as long as I remember.

It was the 90's when I got myself the latest new thing, something called a digital tablet, manufactured by Wacom. It was awesome and huge, it occupied most of my desk space, soon enough its cordless pen replaced my mouse, it could do all the same tasks only better.
I used it constantly for both painting and for simple daily tasks with my Power Mac (Remember those? How retro!).

The tablet was my new canvas and the digital pen was my brush.
Together with an exciting innovative application called Painter, I was just in heaven, in colorful, artist's heaven.

That was in the past. Fast forward to today, I attended last week a webinar by Wacom, so when they offered a special sale promotion for attendees, I jumped in!

Wacom's tablet and Corel's Painter make a dynamic duo, they work together wonderfully and have become the indispensable tools for the digital artist, with many of their users being trained in traditional fine art, me included.

Today, the traditional studio has been replaced by a revolutionary new concept; The Digital Studio.
I've also kept my traditional space (I still like to get down and dirty once in a while, and I couldn't part from my collection of brushes, canvases and many jars of paint). I often combine both freehand and digital methods in one single project.

No, I'm not been paid by these companies to praise their products (but I wouldn't mind if they do), I'm just someone who have tried them and enjoys them as thousands of others around the world.
I love to share a good thing when I find one :)

I'm eagerly waiting to receive my new tablet together with the newest Painter. They say the sky is the limit, in this case... Your digital canvas is the limit!
