 Company Info/Artist Bio

Mitzi is a Colorado-based fantasy artist.  Originally from Japan, her art is influenced by the vintage shojo manga she grew up with, as well as the classic art forms such as tattoo art and woodblock prints of her native country.  Her fantasy art subjects range from cute and whimsical to dark and macabre, and everything in between.  Majority of her Aurora Wings digital stamps are made from the line art of her fantasy illustrations, giving them a uniquely distinct look of flowing lines with high level of detail.  Most are ink & pen traditional drawings, which are either colored free-hand in Corel Painter or traditionally with watercolor.  Her Etsy shop, Aurora Wings, offers digital stamps, prints, ACEOs, coloring books, and originals.
