Japan

Posted on Oct 30, 2015 in Editorial

This month I have been lucky enough to spend 3 weeks travelling around Japan, it was the most amazing trip to such a beautiful country, full of culture, delicious food and the friendliest of people. During the trip I went to see my silkscreen print ‘Paint The World’ in the Awagami International Miniture Print Exhibition. Here are some photos from the trip…
