About Me

Kumiko Kondo

Kumiko Kondo started oil painting in 2013. She painted some Portraits as gifts for some friends to begin with, after which Kumiko started painting lots of Landscapes and Still life. She moved to London in 2014 with her husband and realised that people in Britain enjoy displaying paintings more than Japanese people do. For example many English people love to display paintings in each of their rooms, at an entrance to their flat, in restaurants, pubs, cafes, offices and so on. Kumiko took a liking to this custom and became even more and more interested in painting. Since Kumiko moved to London, she has travelled with her family to see beautiful scenery all over Europe, and she likes visiting historic art museums and art galleries wherever she goes and feels inspired by them. Lately, her works have been appreciated by more people and she has been getting many commissions as well. Many of her friends who have stayed in London for a couple of years ask Kumiko to paint the house they lived in or a place which is precious memory for them, before they leave. She always hopes that her paintings can warm people's hearts and that they will display them in their home or favourite place..

近藤久美子

2013年日本で油絵を始める。始めは知人たちの肖像画を描きプレゼントをしていたが、後に風景画や静止画も多く描くようになる。 2014年ロンドンに家族で渡英。そこでイギリスの人々が日本人よりもより絵を日常的に飾るのを楽しんでいる事に気づく。自宅でイメージに合わせた絵を各部屋に飾ったり、殆どのマンションのエントランスやレストラン、パブやカフェ、オフィス、病院にも飾られている。 ロンドンに移り住んでから久美子はヨーロッパ内を旅し多くの美しい景色を見、行く先々で歴史的な美術館やアートギャラリーを訪れ刺激を受けている。 最近では彼女の絵がより多くの人々に受け入れられ、絵を頼まれるようになる。数年ロンドンに住んでいた彼女の多くの友人達もそこを去る前に自宅や思い出の場所を絵にして残しておきたいと彼女に頼んでいる。 久美子は「気持ちの和む絵」「飾りたくなる絵」を常に心に浮かべながらその後も多くの作品を手掛けている。
