“This trip to Okinawa was a dream come true for me! Since I was a little girl, I had always wanted to do more than just learn about my heritage. I wanted to “live” my culture! This travel memoir captures my journey of self discovery to Okinawa, Japan, and my first visit with my international family. Okinawa is an wonderfully colorful island — a banquet of sounds, tastes and environments that I will never forget.”
My name is Jaclyn Yamada: Illustrator, Graphic Designer, Fashion Designer, Fiber artist, Dreamer, and Web Designer!
I am a graduate from the Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia, and have a great love for all things meaningful, kawaii* pink, nostalgic, sweet-tasting and of course, for the small moments that make life beautiful! My artwork is a merging of illustration and design that embraces a playful spirit and whimsical concepts. Inspirations come from so many various sources there's too many to count! Each is unique and individual to every project I am currently working on! (www.cargocollective.com/jaclynyamada)
