ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: Naoko Stoop
Our next artist spotlight features the illustrator Naoko Stoop!
Naoko's love of drawing began when she was a young child growing up in Japan. Naoko now lives and creates in Brooklyn, New York. She uses found materials including plywood and brown paper bags as her canvas.
We love her collection of sweetly rendered collages with natural materials mixed with light watercolors and hand-drawn lines. She represents the natural world with a sweet sentimental style.
Naoko is also the author of the New York Times Best Illustrated Children's Book "Red Knit Cap Girl".
"In the forest, there is time to wonder about everything.
Red Knit Cap Girl wonders about flowers, butterflies, leaves and clouds."
Join Red Knit Cap Girl and her forest friends on a journey of curiosity and imagination. http://www.redknitcapgirl.com/page/knitcap_gallery.php
