Mariya Suzuki was born in Nara and studied illustration in Long Beach, California. She currently works as an illustrator in Tokyo. She has contributed her work for many musicians, food professionals, and books and magazines from around the world.
In addition to printed media, she also collaborates with interior designers to draw murals. Aside from work, she enjoys going around town to draw subjects whose shape or story catches her attention. We met her in a cafe in Tokyo. The booklet is part of the slipcase “Meeting Tokyo's Creatives”
