Hikari Shimoda was born in 1984 in Nagano, Japan. Her paintings are generally ethereal and dreamlike and take obvious inspiration from anime and manga. Her children look hypnotized, often injured and coquettish. They are cute and surreal and entirely beautiful in the soft pastel dreamscapes hat she creates with her artwork.

day 1: coming home from work to holly being sad and looking dough eyed, i just showed her the lamp switch i pulled from an old broken unicorn lamp and i picked up this old plastic doll i brought home with me from Alabama and I cut her open and shoved the bulb into her back and we both just created this weird doll and used my hot glue gun and glued a bird and flowers and lace all over her and i was really happy. post date/ 3-12-2014
