This is part one in a series I am doing about the Japanese Blink ( Bling ) Artist School! This is an amazing school in Japan where students are taught and become certified to create beautiful Decoden Art Pieces.
After studying illustration at the Nagoya University of Art Design, She joined a company in Nagoya at the Planning Office and was in charge of handeling product development. Yamada enjoyed working there for 5 years but left to pursue her passion of Deco Art.
Once qualified as a professional artist from the Blink Japan Society of Artists she became an Independant Artist creating and selling her artwork.
"AtorieKiko" ( her store ),Opened in March of 2009 for a limited time in Nagoya Kanayama.
Yamada later expanded production and had to move to Saitama to open a studio wear she could produce and fufil all of her online orders. She now works from her production studio in Fujima City, Saitama Prefecture.
Yamada now works as a special instructor giving lectures at the Professional Artist Association of Blink Japanese Artists.
