Hope is an American artist currently residing in Mie, Japan. With her interests in Japanese traditional arts and growing up in a western culture, she creates a unique blend of the two influences. Her work has a strong sense of narrative, which contains a tinge of mystery and the unknown. Her artwork often molds humanity with the natural world, giving the sense that humanity is one in the same, and shouldn’t be a separate entity. Her work contains a variety of mixed media, including sumi, graphite, oils, and watercolors.
