1. What’s your story? Where are you from?

Hi, I’m Suzu Saito from Tokyo, Japan. I’m working as a web designer for one IT company. There are many opportunities to touch illustration during my work, so I became interested in drawing a picture. I love creating and designing something since I was a child. So it is natural that I want to be an artist!
