Hello, I'm Takako.
If you like illustrations, textiles and hand-printed patterns, you're in the right place. You'll find cards, prints and some accesseories in my shop, and news and musings in project page. If you'd like to place a custom order, just let me know.
I came to London from rural southern Japan to study art and design at Central Saint Martins. I fell in love with London and twenty odd years later, here I am.
My jewellery, homeware and lighting has been sold through the V&A, Liberty of London and Tate Modern shop.
I am excited to launch new range of stationery focuses on illustration. Each designs are made with love and care, printed onto high quality matte cardstock in England. Artworks are made from watercolour paintings and lino prints then collaged together with computer to give depth and distinctive style. I hope the cards will be kept and treasured as mini-prints once received.
Lets's work together
I'm available for hire as an illustrator, graphic designer and workshop teacher. Would you like to collaborate on a project? I'd love to hear your ideas.
If you're a retailer and you'd like to stock my greeting cards, please email me at email@example.com.
