Hello, I am Megumi Arai, artist and working mother.
Many years ago, I studied Fine Art & graphic design in Boston. Afterwards I became a world wanderer and lived in several cities such as Boston, Tokyo, Los Angeles & Paris.
After I left Paris, my world wandering years are over, and I am a working mother in Orange county, California. While I am head breadwinner of my family, I create my art work in my spare time and preset at my website, petitspoetes.com.
My website name “Petits Poetes” is French (I have a soft spot for France), and it means “Little Poets”. I worked with my best friend LoLo to come up with this name meaning that all livings on this earth are like little poets who have poems/stories to tell. My art is to visualize poems/stories from all livings and embrace the moment of life.
