Born in 1984 in Osaka, Japan, Sae Tachimori began to work as an illustrator after graduating from the Kyoto City University of the Arts. Her whimsical and vivid illustrations harken back to the fantastical and technically magnificent picture books of the early 20th century, erupting with bright, brilliant colors and chocked full of natural elements and symbolic imagery. The complexity and elegance of Tachimori’s work puts her at the forefront of the up-and-coming generation of young illustrators making waves in Japan today.
