Kumiko Mayer

Mixed Media Artist


Painter & photographer of Light

Japanese living in California since 2010.
I am a self-taught artist who imagines and expresses from the inspiring experiences of my soul.

We are all pieces of stardust.
We have one beginning.
We are connected to the energy of the universe.

Whenever I encounter the beautiful fusion of nature and light, my heart is filled with the joy of being born on this miracle planet.
The immeasurable connection of life reminds us of the preciousness of our lives and souls that are alive here and now, and fills our hearts with gratitude.

I create my works with a deep desire that humanity will truly awaken to love and gratitude for the earth, that the symbiosis and circulation of life and the earth will continue forever, that the world will be filled with the light of true peace, and that the beautiful symphony of the earth and life will continue to be played.
