Etegami is a traditional Japanese folk art that combines thoughtful words with simple images painted on washi postcards. Most of my etegami are painted with sumi ink and traditional Japanese water-soluble pigments called gansai.

Many of the original etegami are for sale at extremely reasonable prices. Ask me about it.
