wonderful discovery...


I bought a card a while back published by Woodmansterne by the artist Emiko Aida.
I was taken by the beautiful illustration of the children in the library listening to a story being read, also the use of colour. I found the card the other day under a pile of reference to sort out and thought I'd research the artist to see more of her work,
wow!

I was blown over by the gorgeous illustrations capturing everyday scenes, the characterizations, style and the colour in her etchings and aquatints, just gorgeous.

Emiko Aida's working is amazing and well worth a look, here's her website, about, and galleries where her work is sold ( I know what I'm saving up for now!!) Check out the fantastic swimmers prints.





Truly inspirational!
