"I am in love with creating digital illustrations as it gives me a freedom to use colors and strong shapes. In general, I take my inspiration from Instagram and fresh fashion news. I not only draw portraits of celebrities from references but also I create my own designs and ideas using new fashion collections and looks as inspiration. I prefer to work as a graphic illustrator using bold colors and lines."

"I love to observe people on the streets all around the world in various situations, and I reflect those observations in my illustrations. Also life in Japan with its wonderful seasons, traditions and neon lights, greatly inspires my work. I mainly draw with watercolors but love doing experiments in mixing several techniques. My illustrations are characterized by a big variation of colors and a love for feminine things."
