I moved to the UK in September 1998 after graduating at High School in Tokyo, Japan. I graduated with a BA Honours in Graphic Design at the London College of Communication (formerly The London College of Printing) part of the University of the Arts, London. This website provides insight into the type of work I do.

Since I was very little, drawing pictures has always been my favourite thing to do, and hence these days, it is not only my occupation but also my hobby. Indeed I would often create and design as a method of relieving my stress, and this often has had a profound emotive effect on much of my personal work. My illustrations are hand-drawn using Mitsubishi's Uniball Signo pen and subsequently coloured and shadowed using Adobe Photoshop. In regards to my design work, much of this is based on specific projects; I develop the ideas with reference to necessary research and structure the design according to the relevant theme. It has been commented that my artwork is exceptionally detailed whilst maintaining a refreshing simplicity. If you would like to give me feedback, commission some work from me, or would like to use my artwork for external projects then please feel free to feel contact me.
