About me

Born in Paris, to Indian parents, raised around the world and educated in the U.K., Divya Marie Kato is an artist, entrepreneur and drawing teacher who came to Japan in 2005 to study the traditional arts.

Tokyo has since become home and she continues to paint and teach in parallel; an aspect fundamental to her work.

From large scale murals to drawings, and following the success of events, workshops and classes, she founded her own business, When In Doubt, Draw, where she strives to empower people through creativity and the simple act of drawing.

She continues to teach in her drawing school, Atelier Kato in Yoyogi, and share drawing with others around the world via workshops and her online drawing school.
