About the Artist:

SAHOKO BLAKE is originally from Tokyo, Japan. Where she already had a distinguished career as an underwater camera woman, artist and teacher to her credit prior to moving to Ireland 25years ago.

Her paintings and drawings of sea creatures and animal skulls comes from a deep contemplation passion for the natural world, and no more so than in her ‘ Bog Bodies’ a collection of paintings and drawings of these remarkable finds in the Irish Bogs. Here she again skillfully portrays with a rich tonality the humanity of these bodies that have lain pressed in the peat for thousands of years.

Sahoko has exhibited extensively in Ireland and abroad, including The National Gallery of Ireland, Gormleys, The Royal Ulster Gallery, RHA Banquet & RHA Annual exhibitions.

Sahoko is a tutor on advanced drawing courses at National Gallery of Ireland since 2007 as well as life drawing classes in Alexandra college, South Dublin ETB Colleges and Royal Hibernian Academy.
