Statement
Born in Tokyo in 1980. 
While emphasizing interest as a picture, she draws illustrations of girls, expressing essences of modern cultures such as a compromise between Japanese and Western styles and “goth-loli” fashions.
Interpreting Japanese unique senses such as wabi, sabi, kare, and iki in a modern way, she fuses two types of depictions: animation & manga and design & arts.
She is active at home and abroad in various kinds of media including paper, digital, and websites, 

book cover designs, interiors of restaurants/bars, magazines, in video game music videos, cell phone icons and cases, and more.
