Hi there! You can call me Miyako or Addi, and I'm an artist living in San Jose, CA. I primarily do watercolors, but also like to explore other mediums such fans, acrylics, even custom denim and shoes! I draw a lot of inspiration from Art Nouveau, Studio Ghibli, and my Japanese heritage.

By becoming a Patron, you're not just unlocking access to exclusive content - you're also helping support the costs of running an art business so I can continue to focus on creating work for you to enjoy. I'm excited to share my process, tutorials, and behind-the-scenes for Patrons in a way that is sustainable!

Here are just a few of the operational costs in USD of running a business (not including upfront costs of producing goods like prints or pins):
  • Website hosting fees: $26/month
  • Scanning costs: $5-8 per piece, average $18/month
  • Supplies (paper, brushes, paints): average $25/month
  • Average cost of a latte from a local family-owned small business cafe: $6/week
  • Event fees: anywhere from $60 to $300 per event

A little bit about me:
I've been making art my whole life, but like many millennial creatives, I entered the workforce at a time when my best options were to simply find something to pay bills and keep health insurance. 

In 2015, I found my way back into art by starting simple - just a doodle every day. This grew to daily sketches, weekly watercolors, art shows, conventions, and even my first Kickstarter! It's been incredible to see how I've grown and the friendships I've made as an artist, but more importantly, I'm so happy to know that I can touch hearts with my creations globally, and I'd love to continue doing so.
Thank you so much for your support - I can't wait to share more of what I create with you!
