An interview with Sachiko Oguri: Amelia’s Colourful Colouring Companion featured artist.

Sachiko Oguri's powerful artworks caught my eye at the recent Middlesex University graduate show. For my colouring book she has produced a wonderfully surreal couple of pages inspired by a Japanese folk tale.

Sachiko Oguri has contributed a surreal and colourful artork for Amelia’s Colourful Colouring Companion. Here she talks about studying in the UK, her love of the half-tone technique and her interest in the stories of other cultures.

That is why I like it.
