My art is lyrical and mystical and possesses a universal appeal
expressed through oil/acrylic painting, embraces nature and enlightenment.
I strive to express love and light through a pleasing flow of color
and magical themes that evoke a connection of two worlds colliding; the reality and the dream, with a strong abstract style by oil painting.
My mission is to provide a glimpse of the joyous beauty of life, to make this world a little brighter place through art.
Manami Yagashiro Lingerfelt was born and raised in Japan, graduating from Tokyo Musashino Art College in 1985. She began her art career in Tokyo, Japan as a graphic designer and freelance illustrator.
She left Japan to travel across the globe for 10 years (1985-1995), then back to Japan for 7 years, teaching arts and crafts.
She moved to GA in 2002, and in 2015, obtained BFA(Bachelor's Fine Art) at Kennesaw state University, Kennesaw, GA.
Her work is inspired by the mystical aspects of the places she visited, The human condition itself, and of the natural world.
She now lives in Dallas, GA and has found her passion to create art in order to brighten up the world we live in, inside and outside.
