Nakisa began working as an artist at Deljou Art Group after graduation from college. Her first exposure to selling artwork made her appreciate the unique artistic styles of her native Japan. Nakisa had taken calligraphy courses in elementary school as part of the normal curriculum.
She hadn’t thought of her skill with a Chinese brush as anything worthwhile until she began work on the Oriental Gardens collection. The flowers seemed to call for more powerful, yet simple and impressive lines. Her skill with the calligraphy and knowledge of the Sumi-E style created just the right feel for the pieces.
Her work is praised and collected nationally and internationally.
