Seven Seas Of Cultural Inking

The clashing of two cultures of Japanese and European heritage, Nanami Cowdroy is a self-taught artist who fused two different cultures to create these beautiful illustrations. Nanami grew up with contrasting cultures which explains the influence in her artwork. She was born in Sydney, Australia with frequent trips to Tokyo, Japan to visit her Mother's family. Growing up in a family of artists, being creative is just second nature. Nanami Cowdroy uses a mixed media of pen & pencil, ink, water color, spray paint, and a hint of digital elements to complete her artwork.
