Symposium Participant - Kumi Matsukawa

Hello, my name is Kumi Matsukawa and am a Tokyo correspondent.I'm coming to the Symposium from Japan. Nice to meet you all. I am a freelance illustrator, I mainly draw story boards for TV-CMs, and I have watercolor and pastel classes to teach near my place.
It was fifteen years ago when I visited the USA last time and just coming to Portland itself is such a thrill for me. Moreover I really look forward to meeting all the enthusiastic sketchers who participate as well as those who give lectures there.
It is amazing that after less than one year of joining Urban Sketchers, I 'll have such a opportunity to see so much influential people at a time.
I hope through the 3-day symposium I 'll learn like a sponge!

On top of waterbrushes and a portable watercolor box, I 'll carry a chocolate box full custom-made palette and some brushes.
