These are photos of Japanese handicrafts that I bought in Japan. Each item is something very special both in color and expression. I have combined the craft work with pieces of wood, paper and food to create still lives. The whole is complemented by colored paper in the background. For me, the "Small Treasures" series is a wonderful reminder of a trip to Japan. I worked on the series with my sister in the studio and took the pictures with a digital camera.
