    In 2014 Akiko Shirotani began to paint between tasks at a coffeehouse. Akiko Shirotani had used to be shy and not good at expressing her feelings to others. However, by receiving praises for her art works from visitors to YAMANAMI, Akiko seems to gain confidence in her ability and gradually open up. Akiko Shirotani likes to draw people and animals, using magazines or books of pictures for reference.
