Keiko Morimoto Illustrations

February 11, 2009

I’m smitten by the illustrative work of Keiko Morimoto today. Born in Japan, raised in England, and currently living and working in Lausanne, Switzerland with her husband Christophe, Keiko’s work is alive with imagination and color.

In addition to her illustrations she creates paper mache dolls as a hobby that are a delight to behold. Keiko has worked with clients worldwide but sadly for us I’m not finding any of her illustrations or dolls available for purchase online. Oh well, they are still so inspirational to look at!

Thanks for the tip, Julia!

    The green necklace does it for me… now off to etsy to see if any fabulous artist has one of the sort…
