Nami Ueno

Organization Details

Toronto , 4


I was born and grew up in a little town called Arashiyama, an important sightseeing district in Kyoto, Japan. As a child, I enjoyed drawing and making things with my creative grandfather. I started art lessons at the age of 15. After 4 years of graphite sketching and watercolor training, I entered Kyoto University of Art and Design graduating in 1997. I have never stopped painting since then.

Thoughts About Art and Community

I am interested in helping people expand their awareness of what they truely love and who they really are, encouraging them to pursuit their dreams or feeling accomplishment by finishing a piece of their own.


Creative and meditational painting and drawing using acrylic paint, water color, color pencils, crayons and pencils.
