Shizuka Kasahara – Leather art “PEACEFUL MOON”
Shizuka Kasahara is a leather craft artist originally from Hokkaido, Japan. In 2008, she moved to Miyakojima that resides in Okinawa, full of nature surrounded by a beautiful ocean. There, she encountered the technique to describe painting on leather.
In 2012, she starting working as an artist, designing and producing her works following the customer’s orders. Shizuka’s “motto” is to brighten the world and the mind of those who see her custom-made leather works. She seeks to reflect the power of nature, the energy of the sun, the moon, the ocean and the trees, through her creation of her beautiful works.
