About the artist
Draws out the daydreams, the longings. Inspired by the nostalgic culture of Japan, stories, music, fashion, and nature, Shoko Ishida strives to create works that sparks a story. The coffee and tea enthusiast creates her mixed media works in the studio with her golden retriever sleeping by the desk.
Currently staying in Michigan USA.
