Instructor – Reiko Hervin
Reiko Hervin is a full-time watercolor
artist. After graduating with honors from Tokyo Design School, she
began her career as a graphics artist. She studied under one of the
great masters of Japanese art for several years. She continued to
study watercolor after moving to the US in 1993. Her artwork has an
accent of Japanese sensitivity of luminous colors and dynamic
expression in the compositions. She appreciates the power of the sun
and the shadows which makes for a three dimensional effect where
delicate colors lay on top of each other. Reiko’s work has been
broadly published and appeared in a number of significant
shows across the country. Her work has appeared on the “Watercolor
Magic Magazine” website in 2003-04. She is a juried member of
Watercolor West. One of her floral paintings appears in “Splash
9-Watercolor Secrets” by North Light Books. Her painting was one of
10 finalists in the Flowers & Gardens Competition for the
International Artist Magazine in 2007, again 2010. Since moving to
Nevada in 1997, she has been very active as an artist and educator
in the area, receiving numerous awards. Her works are in private
collections across the country as well as in Europe and Asia.
