Instructor – Reiko Hervin
Reiko Hervin is a full-time watercolor artist. After
graduating with honors from Tokyo Design School, she began her
career as a graphics artist. She studied under one of the great
masters of Japanese art for several years. She continued to
study watercolor after moving to the US in 1993. Her artwork has
an accent of Japanese sensitivity of luminous colors and dynamic
expression in the compositions. She appreciates the power of the
sun and the shadows which makes for a three dimensional effect
where delicate colors lay on top of each other. Reiko’s work has
been broadly published and appeared in a number of significant
shows across the country. Her work has appeared on the
“Watercolor Magic Magazine” website in 2003-04. She is a juried
member of Watercolor West. One of her floral paintings appears
in “Splash 9-Watercolor Secrets” by North Light Books. Her
painting was one of 10 finalists in the Flowers & Gardens
Competition for the International Artist Magazine in 2007, again
2010. Since moving to Nevada in 1997, she has been very active
as an artist and educator in the area, receiving numerous
awards. Her works are in private collections across the country
as well as in Europe and Asia.
