Following her graduation from the Onomichi Higashi High School, she received a graduate degree from Vantan Design Institute in Tokyo where she studied oil painting, watercolour, printmaking, ceramics, calligraphy, and ikebana.

She also briefly attended the Yamano Beauty College.

Tomoko’s main forte is in the area of the drawing, particularly of architectural drafting.

Since 2014, she has also been working as a photographer based in Tokyo, specialising in Black & White photography.

She uses light and shadows to explore the themes of this earth, the environment, and the Creator.

Tomoko Imashiro aims for the transparency at the heart of light's three primary colours, and devotes herself to bringing to life the unseen beauties and details hidden in the simplicities of our surroundings.
