About

Mai Yazawa’s illustrations are inspired by nature and exploit its decorative possibilities through patterns and motifs. While her background in textile design shines through in her use of intricate repeating patterns throughout her signature paisley detailing, native birds and flowers populate many of her illustrations. Rooted in pen-and-ink drawing, her decorative works capture not just the details but also the personality of her birds, which brings her art to life!
