He has since retired from that position and now createsartworks while pursuing a separate career.

A number of worksfrom my 「艶（TSUYA）」series, focussing onthe eroticism of Japan.
●「艶（TSUYA）1」In this work I invokedthe reds of an autumn maple tree.
●「艶（TSUYA）2」This work was inspiredby a camellia flower.
●「艶（TSUYA）4」This work was inspiredby the floating petals of the cherry blossoms.

A Walk in the Rain
Invited for a walk by a rain-loving friend. In the quiet patter of the rain, where should we go today?
Floating in the Sea
It’s time for a quick dip in the sea to escape from the heat of the sun. It feels so good to drift along. Where will I drift off to?
Growing and blooming in the sun, Spring has arrived!
Walking with such tenacity, you are a flashing red jewel on my finger.

Hours was born in 1993 in Kanagawa prefecture. This year she entered a female arts university where she studies craft arts. As a student she is still exhibiting at art and craft fairs around Japan.
Hours completes the majority of her works in pen, using her own sketches or photos as reference. The multitudes of circles around the animals link her two works. The artist says she likes to think of the circles as representing the world around the animals. They represent the atmosphere, the masses of air or water that we usually can’t see. This is Hours’ first international exhibition.
I drew a peacock I saw at the zoo in this work. He walked around with such elegance that it really struck me. Even without his plumage on show, he was so beautiful. I wanted to show his composure and pomp.
I love sea turtles the best of all animals. They traverse the Pacific Ocean making their long journey despite the numerous dangers. I find this so romantic and appealing. In this work I wanted to show the grace of the turtle as he swims through the deep sea.
