Kiyoko Messenger, wonderful artist turns 90! A lovely birthday party was held for her at the Carlsbad Senior Center. Kiyoko was beautiful in a pale gold kimono. Kiyoko is originally from Japan and has lived in the United States for 50 years. She feels lucky to have two countries to call home. Kiyoko recently gave a wonderful calligraphy demonstration at the gallery as part of our 10 year anniversary celebration. Kiyoko is a beloved artist and teacher. We wish her many more wonderful years!
