~ A little bit about me ~
My artist name 'saé midori' is named after a special type of Japanese sencha green tea. Once brewed, saé midori tea has this marvelous quality of retaining a rich, natural, and very clear emerald green color, hence the name of the tea – saé means clear, and midori means green in Japanese.
When looking at this tea in a white teacup, it instantly reminded me of the color of fresh, newly budding spring leaves, and it felt like I was looking at all the beauty of springtime all at once in one lovely cup of tea. That idea absolutely inspired me, and so the name 'saé midori' became something that I aspire to achieve with my art - to have artworks that visually capture all the fresh fragrances and vibrant colors of the seasons and bring forth one uniquely special moment in time for everyone to see and enjoy.
