This piece of original artwork comes ready to hang.
"Painting and drawing have always my biggest passion since I was a little child. I've been painting and drawing whole my life, but I couldn't find a chance to introduce my work to the public in Japan. When I was in my late 20's, one of my friends from the U.S. suggested to try a gallery there. So I did and my paintering career started. My first piece for the public was “Dancing All Night.” It was made with acrylic and ink on paper for my first U.S. show at Roq La Rue Gallery in Seattle, in 2001." - Yumiko Kayukawa
