- What do you like most about illustrations?
I am not much of a talker, so for me illustration is really nice way to tell stories and express myself. But most of all, I just like the process, it’s a time for me to relax and be productive.
- Do you remember the first illustration you did as a child?
Hmm, I can’t remember my first drawing, but I remember that I did lots of illustrations of a big bunny family…
- What is your inspiration for your artworks?
My inspiration comes from my childhood memories most of the time. I grew up in a small village in Japan and there was always something strange and funny happening. Those things definitely show through in my illustrations.
- What method do you use to create your artworks?
I like to use acrylic paint to paint on paper most of the time, but I’m also into other mediums, like Origami, fabric, clay, wood… Pretty much anything, I love craft.
- Who inspires you..
People around me, and my children.
