My name is Wami Ariga and I was born and raised in Yokohama City in Japan.
Since I was a child I have liked drawing and making my friends happy with my illustrations.
I usually create my artwork by hand, using watercolour and coloured pencils. However, I like experimenting with different mediums and materials such as gouache, ink, collage and sometimes linocut.
I graduated MA in Children's Book Illustration at Cambridge School of Art (UK).
Freelance Illustrator based in Cambridge.
