Nobuko originally studied graphic design, metal & jewellery craft & design also industrial design including product packaging and model making. From before she can remember she have had a pen and paper in her hand. Art and design is an incredibly important part of who she is. Since she started working as a graphic designer, she developed a wide and diverse range of illustrative skills, from traditional paintings to entirely digital work; mainly using illustrator and photoshop software. The portraits she produce have a high degree of realism, sense of atmosphere and capture the model’s character. She also have extensive knowledge of printing and creative packaging work.
