Tomomi Mimura is from the southern island of Okinawa and currently lives near Tokyo. She is an artist and a creator of mosaic-darning. Tomomi came across mosaic tiles in Guell park in Barcelona which served as inspiration to create her unique "darning embroidery" for her whimsical illustrations made of darning pieces or "tiles".
