Hello, my name is Dionnie TAKAHASHI (aka. BLACKCABBIT).
In 2002, I graduated from University of Central England in Birmingham with a BA (HONS) in Multimedia Art, which was based in Singapore. Though my major was animation, my medium of choice is digital painting. Of which, I used to create adorable and heartwarming illustrations.
I’m constantly learning new ways to improve my drawing and storytelling skills so that I can make my characters more expressive, and eventually to achieve the dream of becoming a children’s book author-illustrator one day!
In January 2009, I was married to a really sweet Japanese guy. With a weak grasp of the language, I dauntlessly lugged my two feline buddies and moved our lives to Japan.
Japan, a paradise filled with all sort of art & craft goodies, will definitely inspire any artist to take on a new adventure and explore different ways in art-making. For one who is really comfortable with pencil and computer, I strive to be as versatile as possible so that my work will continue to evolve and diversify. Well, to this unfamiliar part of the world, here I come!
