‘Japanese Maid and Western Maid’ exhibition at Gallery IYN Osaka

After a few years, I started showing my illustrations in galleries again! Between 2008 and 2014 I got the chance to participate in some group exhibitions, especially in US. But, in recent years I have preferred to focus on other projects.

To be honest, art market/art galleries seem to be very far from me and my feeling, although they were a great springboard in the past years.

Anyway, things change (luckily!). This is the first of some exhibitions at Gallery IYN Osaka, in which I will participate in 2021. I feel so lucky they give me the chance to show my work in Japan, in some way it’s a dream that come true! I posted some pictures taken at the Gallery, the owners were so nice to email me them since you know, because of the pandemic, it seems very hard to move outside your country, at the moment! I hope I’ll be able to visit Japan again in 2022 – fingers crossed!

In September, I will also have the opportunity to show my work at Gallery Inverarity, another of my favorite art galleries: the subjects of their exhibitions are always so interesting! More info soon!

Original of ‘Our Tea Leaves’ – the piece done for ‘Japanese Maid and Western Maid’ show is for sale.

Crazy times …

Hello darlings!


I hope you and your loved ones are well, in these crazy times!
I’m good, even if I’m in quarantine – I’m writing this after almost two months of quarantine. In Italy, the situation was really scary, just few weeks ago!
I just wanted to write a quick note to apologise for the lack of updates recently, I miss the time when I used to post entries to my Blogger Blog, almost every day! I was busy with several projects – not just art related ones 🙂 – then the Covid-19 global pandemic makes big changes in our behaviour and life!
I’m here again, hoping things go back normal quickly!
As you probably have noticed, I closed the online shop weeks ago. I couldn’t ship illustrations and merchandise. Post is operating on a very limited basis due to Covid-19.
But, many new illustrations are ready to be shipped, once the quarantine will end – probably in May. Do you prefer I list them on Etsy or on my Bigcartel shop? Or, on Instagram? As customer, which is the best way to buy them? Any suggestion is very much appreciated!
Speaking about commissions….I worked on a few new commissions recently and I think it’s time to update the Prices List.
Basically, no big changes, just prices that now are in EUR i/o USD.
Please, keep in mind that the available slots are very limited. As always, you can contact me by using the Contact Form or email me at: girlwithflaxenhair AT hotmail.com.
