Born in 1979 in Japan. I grew up in a country side in Tochigi-prefecture, so I love the nature, such as, flowers, greens, stars, birds, animals, insects...etc. Upon graduating from Musashino Art University, I worked as a designer for magazines. 4 years later, I was able to begin my freelance career as an illustrator in 2006. Favorites are fresh fruits, nice cafes, tea time, gardening, Finland, Moomin, textiles, beautiful combination of colors and good music. Now I live in Tokyo with my lovely 7-years old son , husband and a cat.
