Tomoko is a San Francisco artist.
She fell in love with sports and arts at an early age. She received her Bachelor degree of Health and Sport Science from Nippon Sport Science University in Tokyo. After a few years working as a sports teacher, she decided to see the world and pursue another of her passions: art. So, she moved to the United States and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design and Multimedia Arts degree from Centenary College in New Jersey. During this time, she worked as a graphic designer for a design agency in Manhattan.
Eventually, she moved to San Francisco and started her own design studio in the SoMa neighborhood. She created her own brand "Colors of San Francisco" which features art prints, stationery and gifts. Her work is now available in selected museums and several stores throughout San Francisco and the Bay Area.
