Zodiac Sign: Aquarius Lives and works in Kanagawa, Japan.
After graduating from Nippon Designer Gakuin, Hiromi worked as a graphic designer and art director. In 2008, she became an illustrator. Her style is popular for its delicate collage technique using various materials such as vintage buttons, fabrics and laces, which enfold the whimsical world of Hiromi Sato. Her works have been widely selected for picture books, book covers, magazines and periodicals, branding and logos, corporate calendars, and more. Aside from her illustrations, her essays published on her blog have gained popularity, and she has published a book of her collected writings, titled “Precious - Japanese Traditional Lifestyle (Taisetu ni shitai, Nihon no kurashi)". This has led to a currently ongoing design collaboration with famous Japanese cloth company Maruzen, renowned for producing Japanese wrapping cloths (or “furoshiki").
Hiromi is also active in exhibiting her personal artwork worldwide.
