1973 Birth of Ina City, Nagano Prefecture. Lives and resides in Himeji city from 1975. Illustration, color pencil artist activity with pen name of TWO.AI's from 1989 to 1995. In 2014 I resumed illustrator as an idol specialist Katanashi Mugyou after about 20 years. In the same year remix CD jacket illustration charge for social media idol notall. Resumed as a colored pencil artist in 2015. An exhibition debut at the British pencil museum (group exhibition). Currently joining Japan, UK, Australia and Canada related societies. From 2017 we have also started exhibiting at the art fair. I am based on the concept of women's spirituality and cuteness both on illustrations drawn on a personal computer and drawings drawn on paper. The style combines illustration and abstract expression with influence which originally drawn manga. When drawing with colored pencils or graphite pencils, we combine various techniques, mainly vertical strokes that draw vertical lines or parallel strokes that only draw horizontal lines. When drawing illustrations, it is the main content to draw character design or fantasy illustration based on collaboration with Japanese animation and photographs. I am also working on digital production using Gimp from analogs such as colored pencils and aqueous magic. In addition to painting women, when drawing buildings, plants, or animals, I will first fill in the details after capturing the shape as an illustration. Sometimes I change pastel, watercolors, acrylic and painting materials. That is related to having decided Katanashi Mugyou as artist name in 2014.

"Let me like my picture! "
Even though I use all the painting materials in order to realize the thought contained in this catchphrase, it means that it means that I can express with my way of use that is not anyone's usage from the past to the present age. I think that as long as there are people who will see me even if only one person looks at my picture, I will continue to draw a picture.
