Japan
Catherine is a Chinese-Filipino professional ink painter based in Fukuoka, Japan. She paints in both Sumi-e and Nihonga (Japanese painting) media. She does paintings on media ranging from Japanese handmade paper (including shikishi and fans) all the way to kibira pure hemp cloth.

Her paintings are done in her own take on various traditional Japanese ink-painting styles. Often painting Bijinga (beautiful women), classic oriental portraits, Zenga (Zen Buddhist paintings), bird ' flower paintings, and occasionally abstract and landscape paintings.

Check out some of her handpainted fans and noren on sale at www.etsy.com/shop/OneBrightPea…
