Yasuko Nakamura  is an illustrator / artist based in Seattle, WA.

My style is inspired by girl’s Manga, Kirie and also through my experience designing stationary for the letterpress process. Mixing manual mediums such as hand drawings and the antique letterpress printing method with digital paintings I strive to create a feel of modern yet classical art. My passion for drawing was cultivated in Japan where I grew up, and I am still living strongly with it in the U.S., finding inspiration in mythical creatures, fairy tales, Venetian masks, dolls, costume design, Ballet, and Japanese textiles. I use these motifs as poetic storytellers within my visual world.


As an immigrant, introducing my Japanese roots through art is a way to express my cultural background and open a door to a borderless audience.
