Tatsuro Kiuchi was born in Tokyo, Japan in 1966. Originally a graduate
in Biology at International Christian University in Tokyo, he made the

change to an art career after graduating with distinction from the Art
Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. He started
illustrating mostly children’s books with several publishers in the US
and Japan and eventually branched out into editorial work in magazines
and the illustration of book jackets and advertising commissions. His
first picture book “The Lotus Seed” (text by Sherry Garland / Harcourt
Brace & Company) has sold more than 250,000 copies worldwide, and has
been commissioned by such clients as Royal Mail to do Christmas Stamp
