I am a self-taught illustrator based in London (but originally from Japan). I love getting my hands dirty so my illustrations are mostly hand-drawn/crafted. I adore children’s picture books and I am currently developing some picture book ideas. My background is in film making and it has taught me a lot about the art of visual storytelling. When I am neither drawing nor writing stories, I go to yoga and dance classes (I have been training as a classical ballet dancer for 20 years), bake and play with my cat Clementine.
