My name is AYA and I’m a painter living in Tokyo.
I’m a self taught artist – I have always loved art and it has been my passion ever since I was a child. Over the years of experimenting with different styles, I was able to develop my own unique style of illustration/painting. The biggest reward of making art is probably the joy of creating, and of liberating myself from “adulthood.”

My works are inspired by many simple things in life – those simple but precious things that make life beautiful and complete. My aim is to help find such small happiness around us, celebrate who we are, and bring a little bit of joy to our everyday life.
