About

xangetsu studio

I loved drawing anime since I was a little girl growing up in Japan with a military dad and a Japanese mom. I came to the U.S. as a teenager and got a degree in illustration. I had lots of interesting brief jobs in the past including assistant sound engineer, bass player in a rock band, and bar waitress. I've also worked in fields of television, radio, and print. In the past 25 years, I've also been a graphic designer.

My work focuses on my illustrations onto wood. The dolls are done with pre-cut wood, but I also use the scroll saw on alot of my stuff. I draw them out, and get them to come to life. I also work in mixed media and watercolor and lose myself completely in my studio for hours. I think that's pretty fortunate for anybody to get lost in their art. I'm also a cat mom to Miu -- and she demands more cat art in the shop!

'xangetsu' is pronounced [zahn-geh-tsoo], meaning 'morning moon' in Japanese (sometimes "cutting moon"). The correct spelling is actually zangetsu. The reason I changed it to a "x" was to reflect my son's name, Xan. He was actually born during the early morning hours when the moon was still out. Thus, it all fits together nicely.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and visiting my shop. :)
