Matsuzawa Azusa work「Ksana」

I started Japanese style painting when I entered University, and have been charmed it’s profundity and mystery all the time. My true work will be done at long future, I think , but I want to continue to draw Women’s mainly with expression of my own.

2009, The work received fine work prize at graduation memory exhibition.

【Paper Cutting Works】

cutout illustrated book『Wood of Rubus pedatus』cover

This is the cutout illustrated book which Azusa Matsuzawa made for the first time. Ms. Hiroko Sakai, the writer of juvenile stories wrote a sentence, Azusa Matsuzawa attached a cut by cutout at the age of a twelfth grader, and published at her college year. This is a heartwarming story that the animals of the fantasy cooperate and winter. I think both a child and adult can enjoy this.
