The female figures, which at first glance appear to be illustrations, can be traced back to the flow of figures seen in the Western master Botticelli, or even to the essence of Japanese painting, showing that the artist has absorbed from various sources to create her paintings.

The paintings as a whole are highly designed and richly colored. In the area of fashion, the artist’s observation and depiction of the clothing and appearance of various ethnic groups is also outstanding. The human body is not unnecessarily muddy and has a natural three-dimensional effect, while the use of highly saturated colors is also very appealing. The eyes are turned to look at us who are looking at them, and there is a core to the gentle yet penetrating gaze.

More than the skillful drawing, we feel love for the characters, perhaps because they seem to accurately show that each one of them is a different person.
