Welcome to Dragon Ikka online shop

The very first show of Dragon Ikka was at Gallery Hop in downtown Columbus Ohio in December,2009.

Hi! My name is Yasuko.

I was born in Japan and Calligraphy was my passion since I was 9 years old.

We Japanese learn Japanese calligraphy in elementary school.

My mother taught me how to make calligraphy ink using “Sumi block” and “Water” as authentic way at home.

It was a challenge until water became very deep black ink for my mother to give me an approval to get started to write words.
My father was a semi professional photographer who also loved Sumie art with blush on the rice paper.

He showed me how to use water to make all different shades of Black colors.

I still remember when he was drawing a dragon in front of me when I was a little kid.

It was like a magic to me!

"Ikka" means one family in Japanese.

I look at all my Arts as my children!

Customers who will be new owners of my arts ( You ! ) are adopting my children so we are all one family!

We are happy to discuss about your custom design logos,

apparels, Jewelries, gifts etc.

Please feel free to contact us!

Thank you,


Dragon Ikka
