Aya Toshikawa (Lady Kawai) was born in 1979 in Kobe, Japan. After graduating, she began working as an animator and found a job in the industry of toys and games. In 1999 she produced poster, package, and skate board design. She typically paints from photographs, representing beautiful female Manga characters.
