Irene Akio | Seattle, WA

In 2007, Irene started painting again after being away from the brush for years. A friend saw her work and asked her to illustrate a children's book about Tokyo. She loved the project so much she didn't want to stop drawing, so this inspired her to create her own nature-inspired studio out of Seattle, Washington. Irene loves to make art and hopes to bring people a moment of joy with her creations.
