About Kaori SAKAGUCHI

Born in Aichi but moved to many places like Osaka and Fukuoka in childhood due to her father's job. Her eyes in childhood was impressed with astragalus and other plants.

She grew up frequently said by people she looks European more than pure Japanese.
That leads her to look overseas.

Her parents is an amateur painter, but she never draw until recent years, only hooked in photography.

She studied abroad in to Paris and UK, in which she visited many museums and gallery. Monet and other impressionists and Bernard Buffet and Keith Haring and Gaudi have fascinated her.

In 2017, she met henna art at Indian event that she participated as a staff in Fukuoka and started to draw for henna art using japanese brush pen.

In 2018, through SNS, she encountered some European art gallery's art magazine competition. Then she got hooked into drawing and painting more.

She thinks to create works is a
small imagination box to take people to broader world.

Her unique & colorful world is narrative to people.
