Stumbling across Schinako's work was such a joy.  Her illustrations pop with colour and undeniably portray the pleasure she takes in her daily life among flowers and rabbits.

Using her chosen medium of acrylic, Schinako captures life and movement in a simple way that communicates an appreciation of nature.  The happiness exuded by her characters is infectious and I, among many others, am patiently waiting for her illustrated book which is surely on its way!
