“I’m not good at asserting my feelings or expressing myself in words, so for me, art is the one way I can express myself without feeling stressed.

Also, for me, art isn’t just a way of expressing myself, but a form of communication that lets me put a smile onto the faces of all of the people I hold dear.

Even now after getting married and becoming a mother, I always feel a yet unknown part of myself slumbering within me.

Delicate and bold, reckless and timid. The most mysterious thing in the world to me is myself.

I may spend my entire life searching for myself through art.”  – Milno

Milno is a self-taught artist based in Japan. She has always had an interest in art and has been drawing since she was old enough to hold a pencil in her hand. She knew art is her passion but had no idea how to become an artist with no art degree. So, after graduating from college she decided to pursue a different career. After working for a while in Japan and becoming a mother, she decided to follow her true passion and pursue her childhood dream of becoming an artist.

She has been honing her skills mainly in graphite and charcoal for the past years.
