About blushing meow
My name is Barbara Asia and I'm an illustrator and a graphic designer. During the day I design ads 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, 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 also are caring for a stray lynx-point siamese and her 4 babies. The mother will be adopted shortly and we’re hoping the babies will find a forever home very soon.
