Ryoko Toyama, watermedia artist
Painting is the active response to my world, past and present.
The creative process and its result move me; they are an engine
of my life. Inspiration comes from visible objects or concepts,
animated or lifeless. My creative process begins with the end in mind.
However, my work often takes its own course, producing the unexpected
in a magical transition. I work with water-based media because of
their fluidity of color and texture.
