Mayumi Ogihara is a creator of fantasy illustration, colouring pages and colouring books, and one of the founders of Star Dust Art Collective on Facebook.
Mayumi is a self-taught, traditional artist based in British Columbia, Canada. She was born in Japan in 1965, to an artistic family with wonderful imagination and skills in many different fields. As long as she could remember, she had always loved to work on a variety of arts and crafts, particularly graphite drawing. Prior to becoming a full-time artist, she was often commissioned privately to draw family portraits.
In 2009 Mayumi joined an online art community, where she renewed her passion for drawing and also began to create fantasy art which is a genre she always enjoyed. It was when she decide to pursue her art career. While she continues to love the simple beauty of graphite drawings, many of her newer pieces are completed in full colours. Several of her drawings were included in art magazines and websites. Her art has been sold to private collectors and fans around the world, and licensed for PSP tubes. In 2015 she started creating colouring pages and published some colouring books.
