Nobby was born in the residential area on the hill surrounded with the sea and mountains of Hyogo prefecture, and her unfettered view of life is based on her nature-rich and easy-going hometown.
She loves painting pictures and playing sounds from childhood. She was absorbed in wind instrument music from 11 until she graduated from high school, now she still plays the trombone and sings a song. 
She studied interior design and molding in college. After graduation, she decided to be an illustrator and got the first job a week after she sent resume to five publishing companies.
Her career was mainly in publication, advertisement, and comics. In 2010, she moved to Tokyo to expect more free expression, and started another career as an artist.
In 2014, she expanded her range of activity by launching the apparel brand “ILicca”.
“Work of Art”
You must be glued to her colorful and cute girls with big impressive eyes.
Those are drawn with iPad and Apple Pencil, or a canvas and paints. The characteristic of her work is new “Kawaii” expression influenced by those her childhood favorites which are Japanese comics, anime, and traditional Japanese painting.
The background of her pieces often represents the circle of life; like a raindrop falling from the sky flows down into a river and the ocean, then goes back to the sky by evaporating to drop another one.
The theme of her work is to sublime all those — the immutable image of “girl”, emotions like nowhere in the enigmatic universe, and poison — into “POP” as a pray for love and peace.
