Japanese-style Painter

Japanese-style Painter

A female artist representing Japan. Without losing curiosity about her favorite natural flora and fauna and Japanese culture, she continues drawing works at present. She is called "flower artists", since the motifs of many of her works are natural lives such as flowers and birds. In recent years, she draws works with microorganisms and livings in the sea as their motifs.
