article - Remembering a Talented, Young Pastelist: Akiko Hoshino

''I always want to make picture which give a hope to people. No matter how depressed they are, people should go forward. I imagine myself to be in the same situation. when I create my artwork. Some people look at the future straightforward with strong will. Tender smile reminds people of happy time. I think peoples feelings and expressions are beautiful. Those feelings and expressions give other people courage and high-spirited heart, also make me vigor to make my pictures.

My art pieces are executed by chacoal and pastel in black and white. One of the reasons why I use black and white is they are strong and simple, and also emphasizes "Light". ''
