Original Japanese Art by Noriko Matsubara​

Hello, my name is Noriko. I’m a Japanese Artist, Illustrator and Author based in the North East of England. In my exciting new workshops I teach people just how easy it is to create beautiful Japanese Art.

I practice a Japanese art form called CHIGIRI-E, traditionally created using hand-torn Japanese paper. Chigiri-e Art is created using no extra ink or paint. Or scissors! Whilst my work is influenced by my Japanese heritage, the material I use today is modern newspaper print which adds a special contemporary dimension to my work. In this website you can view my work, read my blog, buy my Art Prints and discover my Japanese Art Workshops.
