Nami started practicing the art of makeup in Tokyo in 2009 before leaving her traditional upbringing to pursue adventure in London.

Nami finds inspiration through her observations of nature, people, photography and art.  Studious and sensitive to her surroundings, these elements can be found in her approach to makeup.  Balancing the play between the pure and the incarnate, her experiments with texture have made her a favourite amongst a new generation of photographers that include Johnny Dufort, Harley Weir, Oliver Hadlee Pearch and clients that include Anya Hindmarch, Burberry, Balenciaga and Kenzo.

Nami’s work can be found in publications such as Another, Dazed and Confused, Document Journal, i-D, Pop, Re – Edition.
