This week, I want to share some of the art prints available from Japanese artist Haruto Morita.  She creates beautiful images, many of which feature lovely Japanese women in kimono!

She is originally from Kita-Katsushika County, Saitama Prefecture, Japan.

Morita-san now lives in on the New South Wales coast at Korora, in Australia: “where the light and climate are perfect for her work.” (from her web bio page).

Also from her web page bio: “Her work can best be described as a contemporary representation of the traditional Ukiyo-e, and ranging from the Heian to Edo and Meiji periods.

Her web site is linked here.

… or this way http://www.haruyomorita.com.au/

Please enjoy this small slide show of some of work.  Better yet, visit her website and order a print!

You can also purchase screensavers, jigsaw puzzles and other items derived from her art.
