Midori Yamada (?? -present, Japanese)

Midori Yamada (??-present, Japanese) is a water-colorist and illustrator who is fond of cats and features them prominently in her works. Cats are primarily depicted with pomegranates and flowers.  The detailed lines of these works bound bright, lively colors. Her cats are mysterious creatures; their enigmatic eyes beckoning us to guess their meaning.

Yamada is a descendent of calligraphers, and her art can be found on many Japanese book covers. 

Yamada currently lives and works in Chiba, Japan. You can visit her site at www.midoriyamada.net.
