Hogusa Amamiya: Profile

Hogusa Amamiya, a graduate of Atomi University, was born in Saitama Prefecture in 1981.

A central theme in her illustrations is landscapes that seem to be a combination of the ordinary and unordinary. Using ballpoint pen, colored pencils, acrylic and more, she creates the trebling lines + liberating colors of her characteristic style.

Recently she has also been actively participating in exhibitions at galleries and bars, and also designs t-shirts and makes teddy bears.
