Ayako Okada - JCAT


Ayako Okada(hair stylist☆Kosuke Kakinuma)


  • Ayako Okada, was born in Tochigi, Japan. She loved to play with animals, draw pictures, and make handiworks when she was a small child. This influence was from her grandfather, as he loved plants and animals and manufacturing in nature. As for her, time with him was in admiration. Spending time together with him were one of the happiest memories when she was a child. But, as she grew up she gradually forgot to play with animals, to draw pictures, and to make handicrafts that she loved in her childhood. She lost sight of herself, and her mind and body were exhausted at the age of 25. She took time off for 3 years and she cried a lot while evaluating herself. She remembered when she was small that was the time she was an enthusiast and live life to the fullest. She says “I am fairy.” bcause a fairy loves flowers, plants, animals, and plays happily. Fairies dwell in works of art which are made by Ayako, who is also a fairy. It’s really a fairy tale. Now she recalled living her life enjoying her own fairy tale.

    Her works always involves flowers, plants and animals. They talk happily and play peacefully with many friends. That was the fairy tale world she experienced when she was child. She says that she wants to make people happy through her fairy tale. The trip of her fairy tale began.

  • 栃木県に生まれた岡田彩子は小さい頃から動物と遊んだり、絵を描いたり、物を作ったりする事が大好きだった。その影響は彼女の祖父からであり、祖父は自然の中で植物や動物、物作りを愛していた。子供ながらに大好きなことをしている祖父の姿は憧れであり、一緒に過ごす時間がとても楽しかった。しかし彼女は大人になるにつれて子供の頃大好きだった物を作る事や絵を書く事、動物と遊ぶ事を忘れてしまっていた。自分自身を見失い25歳の時に心身ともに疲れ果てた彼女は生きる事すらやめようとしていた。彼女は3年の年月をかけ、たくさん泣き自分自身と向き合った。そこで思い出したのは小さい頃大好きだった事をして生きるという事であった。彼女は自身を妖精だと言う。妖精は花や植物・動物が大好きで、そこでいつも楽しく遊んでいるからだ。そして妖精の彼女が作る作品には妖精が宿っている。まさにメルヘンだ。そう、彼女は今世で自身のメルヘンを楽しみながら生きる事を思い出したのだ。
