Julia Takagi
My name is Julia Takagi. I'm actually from Germany, my husband is Japanese and we live in Japan since 2005. One of my greatest passions is painting. I had several exhibitions in Germany (Wiesbaden, Hofheim), Japan (Hakodate, Tokyo, Nagoya, Fukuoka, Kobe) and one in the USA (LaGrange, Georgia). The beautiful nature of Japan inspires me and I paint almost every day.

Personal Quote: Things have only the power you give them

Vielen Dank für den fave Julia!! :D

Wie geht's Dir so? Habt Ihr euch in Tokyo schon ein bischen eingelebt?
martoo1973 Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2017
Gern geschehen. Mir/uns geht es super. Chiba ist eine tolle Stadt und unsere Wohnung und die Gegend drumherum sind auch einfach nur schön. Arbeite gerade an verschiedenen kreativen Projekten und hab u.A auch mein altes Comicprojekt ausgemottet. Dazu hatte ich ja den riesen Auftrag mit den 3 großen Fuchsbildern und auch sonst ist alles gut. Gerade weil ich auch mit einigem abgeschlossen habe, was mich in Deutschland seit Jahren unangenehm belastet hat. 

Und bei Dir? Auch alles soweit gut?
Hast Du mal wieder eine Ausstellung gehabt?
Togusa76 Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2017  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Das freut mich das es Euch gut geht. :)

Nein, eine weitere Ausstellung hatte ich nicht. Ich habe mich auch nicht weiter darum gekümmert.
Meine Arbeit stresst mich so sehr das ich eh wenig Lust zu malen habe.
Ab und zu mal ein Bild für mich ,dass mir persönlich wichtig ist, mehr aber auch nicht.
Ansonsten ist aber alles soweit super bei mir. :D

Ja, das glaub ich... man braucht viel Zeit und Muse zum Malen.

enjoyed your flying insects, shrooms and monumental landscapes. you've got a style. 
martoo1973 Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2016
Thank yu sooooo much :D
I started to paint butterflies, because my Mom died just at the age of 64. I was totally depressed, but one guy said to me "look at a Butterfly, it will only live for 2-3 days, but whenever you see it, you are not sad, you enjoy the beauty of it, that's how we should remember wonderful people, who leave us too soon. His words really helped me back then, so I try to capture the beauty and joy, those insects give me.
