Welcome to Ellen Million Graphic’s Featured Artist of the Week! Each week, we select an EMG artist and share their work and history. We hope you enjoy getting to see incredible artists this way.
This week, our spotlight turns upon the gleaming and diligent Mitzi Satu-Wiuff! Mitzi is originally from Japan and, while she now lives in Colorado, creates work imbued with the cultural spirit of her homeland. She identifies shojo manga, tattoo art, and woodblock prints from Japan as distinct influences upon her work. Her passion for ballet also shows in the arrested movement of her painted and sketched figures, and her erstwhile focus on landscapes and florals brings a remarkable layered detail to her current work in fantasy art. Read more about her, her work and honors in art, and see her galleries at www.aurorawings.com.
Mitzi has worked with Ellen Million Graphics since she first achieved her dream of publishing a coloring book with us in 2011: you can still find Gardening and Goddesses (along with a second volume!) in our storefront linked below. She’s also been a staunch supporter of EMG, and a gleeful participant in Sketch Fests – her Sketch Fest gallery is filled with adorable sprites, nature-bedecked ladies, and macabre beauties.
We invite you to explore more at her pages over on EMG as linked below:

Her work is also featured in the coloring books Apples and Roses, Brain Celebration, and Scheherezade’s Shimmy. Check out all the current EMG coloring book titles on their redesigned page.
