About the JRAAbout_the_JRA.html

Nathan Imm & Risa Hirao work as a collaboration. Imm turns creations on the lathe from locally collected wood that highlights its nature, and Hirao is an illustrator whose drawings are influenced by Japanese science fiction and folk art. He creates the forms and shapes that provide the canvas for the imaginative hand-painted scenes and figures that she applies. Both are primarily self-taught, bringing lessons from a wide variety of arts and crafts methods and styles into their selected media. As a husband-and-wife team they collaborate in a way that each artist responds to and enriches the other’s work.
