Piia Ylitalo, 21, student of Japanese studies.
Drawing has been a very dear hobby to me since elementary school; I could spend hours during the night in the candlelight concentrating on just drawing. I have always used just pencil and have never colored any
of my works. Howerver, after finding watercolors I immediately decided to use them for
the works here for I feel they are more inspirational than any other method and reflect
perfectly the image I have of Japan. Although the works here now portray more of the
naive side of the country, I still want to hang on to that mystical side which took shape
during my childhood. Even if just a little bit.
Artwork coming up.
