Ikuyo

Ikuyo grew up in the northern part of the Hyogo Prefecture in a countryside surrounded by nature. When she was a child, she liked drawing and crafting.

In 1979, after enrolling in an art school, her picture of an imaginary world was nominated for the 64th Nika Art Exhibition in Osaka. In 1980, she got a job in advertising and thought that graphic design work was a perfect job for her. In her heart, however, she knew “what I like is different.” She left the company and after doing some freelance work, she started painting again. Ikuyo was fascinated and influenced by the composition and colors of Hokusai’s paintings. In 2016, she held a Two-person exhibition at her parents’ home in the Hyogo prefecture, and was happy to be featured in a local newspaper. Recently, she uses a pen to create subtle and dynamic expressions of the flora and fauna of nature. She hopes to bring smiles to those who see her work.
