About the Artist:
Haruyo Morita's work can best be described as a contemporary representation of the traditional Ukiyo-e, and ranging from the Heian to Edo and Meiji periods. Many of Haruyo Morita's paintings hail from her deep appreciation of the style, flamboyance and drama of Kabuki theatre. Haruyo herself trained for many years as a Kimono painter under rigorous schooling. This training naturally imbued her with many of the design skills, displayed in her art, which are so obviously redolent of a unique national heritage.
She resides on the New South Wales coast at Korora, in Australia, where the light and climate are perfect for her work.
