Hello! 

My name is Barbara Asia and I'm an illustrator and a graphic designer. During the day I design ads, web graphics and magazine layouts and by night I am either painting, sewing, or coming up with new drawings. I am half-Japanese, born and raised in Japan, came to the U.S. as a teenager and been living on the east coast since 1974.

My work focuses on my cat illustrations onto wood, paper, fabric and digital. I have one beautiful, feather-light long hair black kitty named Miu (which actually means "beautiful feather" in Japanese) and she is absolutely just the best cat ever. She is my inspiration for my illustrations. 
My SO and I are parents to adult children but we are also cat parents to three tabbies which we are looking for their fur-ever homes.

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