About Me


Reina is a designer and illustrator from Japan, currently based in Los Angeles, CA. She is best known for her illustration series, "Sole Fatale," where she reimagines iconic sneakers into pin up style art. 

She grew up moving back and forth between Tokyo, Hong Kong and Los Angeles, finding homes and collecting inspirations across vastly different cultures. Her background is reflected in her art, as her style is blending elements of classic pin up, American graphic novels and a modern twist on traditional Japanese illustrations.

Today, Reina is a Visual Designer at Snapchat, while pursuing her passion for sneakers and creating art.
