A transplant from Tokyo to New York, Rika has made her love for art and fashion into her profession.
Graduating from the School of Visual Arts in New York City, she has worked in many outlets including print editorials, promotional ad campaigns, graphic cad divisions for multiple apparel companies and has landed herself working on the forefront of some of the top New York based design companies.
Searching for a more hands on approach to art aside from what graphic design entailed, she started doing nail art and soon after was introduced to the craft of makeup.
Her knowledge as an artist has given her an eye for beauty and skills for makeup artistry. Rika quickly found herself working with respected makeup artists and NY taste makers, working on editorials, ad campains to seasonal lookbooks.
With her ear to the ground, you can catch Rika out and about on the streets of New York.
