P r o f i l e

Yoshie Allan is a self-taught visual artist, illustrator, and pattern designer.

After spending her childhood in Fukushima, Japan, where she combined her imaginative world and creative skills – such as DIY, drawing, and sewing – largely influenced by her grandmother and father, she changed her path while studying in Nihon University Veterinary course and shifted her focus to fashion design at Esmod Japon, Tokyo.

Following her experience in the apparel industry, she began showcasing her artwork as an illustrator and collage artist based in Tokyo from 2006 onwards.

Yoshie has engaged in various projects, including the creation of published picture books and illustrations, collage and pattern designs for advertisements and products, as well as three-dimensional fabric artwork and custom-made pieces for individual and commercial clients and exhibitions.

She also experienced many collaborative works with like-minded creators, companies and brands. For example, ’Sas and Yosh’ (, design duo co-founded with British artist Sarah Bellisario, has produced designs for commercial spaces and hospitals, book illustrations, interior patterns, and more, utilising both hand and digital illustration techniques and sharing their creativity in the UK and internationally.

In recent years, she has found special inspiration in the contrast between light and shadow within the natural world. She has been experimenting with expressing her own philosophy of life through painting, drawing, paper cutting, and various colourful fabric artworks and patterns.
Yoshie has lived in Hertfordshire, UK, with her family for over 13 years.

Alongside her ongoing career as an artist, her life’s work now includes a dog walking business, initiated by her beloved dog Margo, which has also inspired her to become a bespoke pet portrait artist.

Her endeavours are filled with laughter and discoveries, fostering great connections with humans, animals, and nature.
