Akko Tera (Painter)
As a child, Akko liked to draw and admired manga artists. She discovered fashion in her adolescence and began sketching clothing designs and studying apparel design. After doing graphic and web design work, she lived in India for 5 years from 2010. In India, she became fascinated with curved lines and the splendor of plant motifs in block prints, henna tattoos, and mandalas. Akko studied art under a South African-born teacher and learned the joy of having art within her reach.She has a natural interest in the strength, kindness, and purity of animals and the beauty of plant design, and mixes them together with a unique, feminine sense.
