About me

I am an illustrator based in Minneapolis, US and Tokyo, Japan.

Growing up watching films and drawing, I was later inspired by ukiyo-e and contemporary Japanese lithographs to move into art professionally. My work is now focused on illustration. I pull from numerous influences—film, ukiyo-e, gritty Tokyo streets, and contemporary Japanese and American pop culture.
