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&workd in several cities such as Boston, Tokyo, Los Angeles & Paris. But I never forgot my passion for art work.
After I left Paris, my world wandering years came to the end, and now I am settled in Orange county, California. While I am juggling family duties and work, I create my art work in my spare time.
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 (Laurence) to come up with this name meaning that all livings on the 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.
