About me

I am a Japanese graphic designer, who specialises illustrations. I left Japan four years ago to the UK to study art and design. Once finishing my foundation in Art University at Bournemouth, I moved to London for more experimental ideas, and now I almost finished my degree of Graphic Design: Illustration Pathway at Central Saint Martins, University of Arts London, where I developed conceptual arts. I am happy to continue my career in London for a couple years more, currently looking for commission works or art exhibitions to join. On the other hand, I'm also passionate about healthy diet and sustainable living, which are something that I would like to do more for in the future. Please drop me an email about any works or feedbacks. I will try to contact you as soon as possible.
