My name is Chiho and I am the founder of NamiBear. I am a Japanese artist based in Minnesota, USA. My work consists of painting animals and nature in watercolor, and creating patterned or cartoon styled illustrations.

When you take a look at my portfolio, you will probably notice that a lot of my watercolor paintings feature pit bull dogs. That’s because I consider myself a pit bull advocate and I am passionate about changing it to a positive one. I have a rescue pit bull dog, Nami, and she has had an immense impact on my life since I adopted her in 2015. As you might have already guessed, my company name comes from her :) NamiBear is a place where I can combine my passion towards animals and art, and share it with others.

If you’d like your dog or cat to be painted in watercolor, visit my website to submit a request form.
