Hiromi Ashlin is a world-renowned "ju-dan" level Japanese calligrapher and origami master and the inspired creator of beautiful, extraordinary and unique works of art. From the assemblage of meticulously folded Japanese papers, calligraphy painting, stippling, and washes, Hiromi's art expresses a Zen-like quietude that emerges out of highly organic environments of powerful movement and color transitions.
