Portrait of an Artist : REE NAKADA

Illustrator and good friend Ree Nakada recently came to visit after her trip to Japan. Showing her the new home studio we came to a quick impromptu decision to produce a series of images which reflect the inner workings of the petite artist.
The photographs explore themes of mental health and body image. Exposing struggles which Ree herself has personally faced, to find freedom in artistic expression.

Ree produces her work under another monika ‘Melancholy Mandy” which you can check out online and her artwork at Little Tengu Preston, Melbourne VIC.
