Hello everyone! I'm Mika from Japan. I paint Japanese calligraphy
called “shodo” and ink paintings called “suibokuga”. I studied “shodo”
for 8 years when I was in Japan. The whole process of doing “shodo”
makes me calm and helps me concentrate. Painting "shodo" is very
different from other types of art. From beginning to end it's completed with a flow. Once you put the brush down on the paper you don't go back to re-touch, so it can be frustrating when it starts well but you don't like the very last stroke!
I take custom orders (any size up to A2) so if you would like your favourite quote to be translated and painted in Japanese please contact me. Thank you!
