Yas Imamura is an Asian American illustrator who has done work for clients like Anthropologie, Sanrio and Papyrus. She also owns a greeting card shop called Quill & Fox which has been a delightful pursuit of infusing humor and fun quips into her drawings.
As a child, Yas has always been fond of doodling, and much to the dismay of her parents, on surfaces she shouldn’t-like the treasured pages of children’s books. Much of her work now draw inspiration from those same books she enjoyed as a kid, her art evolving into an amalgamation of both the timeless and modern. Her preferred materials are gouache and watercolor and often finds herself drawn to projects that are playful and a little offbeat.
Yas lives with her husband Andrew and their dog Lisa in Portland, Oregon— a perpetually rainy place that necessitates a multitude of her indoor hobbies.
