There is no shortage of creatives in Toronto and whenever I work with an amazing artist, I’m left inspired. Lichia of Gotamago is an incredible illustrator and watercolour artist. She sketches, paints and illustrates the world so beautifully.
I had the pleasure of photographing Toronto-based illustrator Lichia's work and studio, Gotamago. The first time I saw Lichia's dim sum-themed calendar, I loved it and picked one up for myself and ever since then, I've followed her work.
We first collaborated together on a shoot when she was a model for a baby shower photoshoot, which was featured on the cover of Mingle Magazine, a publication of creative ideas for special occasions.
If you're in the East York neighbourhood, be sure to stop by the Gotamago shop and studio and say hi to the team.
Karen is the owner and artist behind @ohmyinspired, a collection of paper goods. It’s fascinating to watch and document someone create from a blank canvas.
Who would’ve known that many years after we first met in elementary school that we would have the opportunity to work together and support each other’s businesses. I'm so proud to see how far she's come and can't wait to see where she'll take it.
