ARTIST｜ Fumie Shimaoka
From an early age, she enjoyed working at a desk, concentrating on her hands and fingers, and enjoyed attending Montessori classes. Her skill at origami led her to a job at a hotel where she folded napkins and other linens, and she spent her spare time learning calligraphy, Lillian, and knitting. One day, she suddenly developed acute oedema, and was feared to be blind, but miraculously recovered, and after correcting her eyesight with contact therapy, she began to draw bold, detailed line drawings with a water-based pen that she had on hand.
The characteristic of her works is that she draws her favorite things and thoughts by steadily connecting tiny circles and cells with her unique sense of color. In the beginning, she drew monochrome works, but gradually she started to have many colors, changing shapes, and the pieces multiplied, gradually establishing her current style.
She wrote her motto on a piece of paper when she graduated from high school: "Life is interesting because unexpected things happen.
She now spends her days at the work center, enjoying her creative activities at the table after dinner with her family.
