Sanami Shimada’s works appear at first glance to depict delicate females lost in thought, but on closer inspection reveal women with bewitching feminine charm, connecting with the deepest inner workings of the heart. Here is a young female artist who has greatly expanded her range in recent years and we are excited to share her growth for all to see.
