We now introduce the incredible Yumi Muraeda!
"In 1980 I came to Los Angeles from Kyoto Japan as a Package Designer.
While I was there I studied and became fluent in the English language.
I worked for Gould AND Associates in Los Angeles as a Package designer/illustrator, production artist.
PLAY JOYS inc.,Lomita toy company as a designer,
After this I established my own company as a freelancer.
My last job in US is Landmark Entertainment as a designer for SANRIO Theme Park.
I transferred back to Tokyo in 1993 .
I became a Mother and wife and continued to expand my art.
I have a daughter who is a 21year old and a gentle husband.
Two years ago I started doing scrap booking and became a Creative Professional at CHA last year.
I attended the Show in Las Vegas 2013, and the inspiration was fantastic.
I was able to attend the Graphic 45 Workshop and was very inspired. In an instant I was captivated and the encounter brought my hopes and dreams to life.
For me the figure was in sight.
Born in the U.S.A. about Roaring 20’s and 30’s. With the greatest fashion, beaded dresses, straight bob hair, cigarette holders, sipping cocktails in an elegant Bar dancing the Charleston . Such an American icon! And liberated woman…"
This By the Sea tag mini album is so much more! It is Yumi's very own aquarium that opens in the most clever of ways! You will love each and every detail of this wonderful project.
"I wanted to have made the stamp on the acrylic board and to make the image of aquarium."
Wow! This opens up so amazingly to reveal pictures, more hidden images, fun ocean creatures, and more!
