HELLO, I AM TSUYUMI
Art has always been a big part of my life. At a young age I became proficient at calligraphy and started painting. As a teenager I became involved in television and acted in various Japanese dramas, before entering Tama Art University to study Theatre and Art. I already had a passion for travel at this stage, and took an opportunity to spend some time studying art history in Italy. After spending some time in Australia and returning to Japan I found myself working as a radio and television announcer in Tokyo, setting my brushes aside.
Now in Singapore, in a new chapter of life, I have dusted off my easel and rediscovered my love of painting. In the past I have used many different mediums, but I am currently using acrylics which I find better suited to the tropical atmosphere. Colour and light are very important to me as my work is an expression of feeling. This is often interpretive rather than photo-realistic and because of this I prefer not to constrain my painting style. I hope you enjoy my work. Please contact me if you would like to own some!
I’m really pleased with the portrait. The way Tsuyumi captures light and mood is very perceptive. I don’t normally like pictures of myself but this reminds me of a feeling and I like that very much.
Tsuyumi captures her subject and the moment so wonderfully well, then she enhances it with her use of light and colour with delightful results.
