Kayo Inaba's pieces offer a charming peek into her life along the outskirts of Kyoto City. Nature, and all its enchantments, is her family's backyard; her children can play within mountainside forests and come home to a mother who eagerly awaits a retelling of their adventures. It's happy moments like these that influence the clear theme of Inaba's work: enjoying life's simple pleasures.

As an artist, she strives to spread the happiness of her daily life to people all over the world.
