Mayumi Ogihara

I'm a self-taught pencil artist, originally from Japan, and currently living in Duncan, BC, Canada, with my husband and two sons.   Art has always been a part of my life. Many of my family members have artistic and creative minds, and ever since I was a child, I have been influenced by their beautiful works.   I like all sorts of arts and crafts, but I particularly enjoy drawing. I've always been fa scinated by the simple beauty of art created using nothing more than a pencil and paper.   In the beginning of my drawing career I was mainly working on portraits, but in recent years, I've discovered a passion and love for creating fantasy themed art. The majority of my artwork is done in graphite pencil. I also work with coloured pencils and other media from time to time.   If you're interested in hiring me for a commission work, send me an e-mail to My Website: Pencil Art by Mayumi Facebook page : eBay Store : Etsy shop : PSP Tube : DeviantArt : Shadowness I like drawing, reading, arts and crafts, and baking Favourite books Sharon Shinn, Catherine Asaro, Cecelia Ahern, Juliet Marillier and many more
