2021 ボローニャ国際絵本原画展 最終入選
Painting and picture book artist / Resident in Kyoto
Born in Osaka, currently based in Kyoto.
She has mainly drawn paintings, illustrations, picture books, matryoshka and kokeshi wooden dolls.
She usually uses gods, people, animals, plants, mountains and stars as her motifs, and for her, matryoshka and kokeshi dolls are positioned as a kind of talisman to contain her motifs. She regards the paintings as something to embody the sanctuary of the heart - a place where the heart can return to.
In recent years, she has expanded her activities such as the package design for aroma shops and the wrapping paper for baked sweets shops.
