ⒸShin Yamagishi

Because of an unexpected accident at her early childhood, she determined to be a Japanese style painter when she was in junior high school,

Since then, she was attracted by all strong things, she started to paint giant trees with the theme of vital force while she was studying art at art university.

In the meantime, she chose cherry blossoms as the main motif to express sadness, emptiness or changing human emotion on cherry tree. During her trip looking for cherry trees many places in Japan, she felt human being in Miharu Takizakura in Fukushima Prefecture, and continue to visit  for ten years.

She aims to express cherry trees which no one has seen before by painting various motifs regardless of genre. Also she adopts outdoor painting to get further reality.

Her painting style, expressing sound and undulation of Nature without a draft, is highly appreciated by Mr.Philippe Piguet, great grand-child of Claude Monet.


Born in Ishikawa Prefecture in 1982 grown in Kanagawa Pref.

Graduated from Japanese Painting Faculty of Musashino Art University in 2005
