My name is Barbara Asia and I'm an illustrator and a graphic designer. Born and raised in Japan, I came to the U.S. as a teenager and been living on the east coast since 1974. (Yes, I'm a Hapa.)

My work focuses on my cat illustrations onto wood, paper, fabric and digital. Our cat family includes a beautiful long hair black kitty named Miu who is my inspiration for my illustrations, 3 very large tabby siblings, another set of outdoor 3 siblings and 3 daily visitors. Ten in all!

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and visiting! :)
