Profile

奥原しんこ / Shinko Okuhara

宮城県生まれ。横浜美術短期大学卒業、セツ・モードセミナー卒業 。番組美術制作会社勤務を経て、1997年より東京を拠点にイラストレーター、画家として活動中。

植物のある風景、人物や動物、建物などのペインティング、ドローイング、版画作品を制作。主にパッケージ、書籍、CDジャケットなどのイラストレーションを手掛ける。国内外で展覧会を多数開催するなど作家としても作品を発表している。2002年よりスタイリストと共にはじめたブランドCHEESE mongerでは、顔柄などのテキスタイルデザインを担当。近年は植物に興味を持ち、植物のある絵を好んで描き、得意としている。また作品制作と共に続けていたヨガを深め、メディカルヨガインストラクターの資格を取得。身近な人に健康であるためのヨガを伝えながら制作に取り組んでいる。

I am a Tokyo-based illustrator and artist, who creates paintings, drawings, collages and prints. I have created illustrations for advertisements, packages, books and CD jackets, as well as exhibiting around the world, including Tokyo.

I was born in Miyagi Prefecture in Japan. I studied art at Setsu Mode Seminar in Tokyo after graduating from Yokohama University of Art and Design. I have been working as an artist since I left my job at a TV production design company in 1997.

Lately, I have been very interested in flowers and plants and have switched my focus towards botanical drawings, which has become one of my fortes.

I launched a fashion and accessory brand, CHEESE-monger with a Japanese stylist in 2002, and design textiles, one of which is well-known for the human faces illustration.
