Megumi Hashimoto

Originally from Japan, Megumi spent her youth in USA and has lived in England for over 30 years.

She specialises in portraiture of animals and people in pastel.   Megumi finds that pastel gives her an immediacy of colour and that applying pastel feels like a natural extension to her fingers.

She also enjoys landscape for which she explores different styles and media.

Through her art, she aims to capture the spirit of her subjects where she often finds humour in their unique situations.

Megumi exhibits with the Cambridge Drawing Society, Royston Arts Society and Cambridge Open Art Exhibition.
