IT企業に勤めた後、独学でデザインを勉強しフリーランスとなる。企業のWebデザイン、グループウェアの画面デザイン、Photoshop関連の執筆などの仕事を行う。
2000年に「Digital Image」の審査を通過し、デジタル作家「児玉明実」として活動。主にデジタルで制作をしてきたので、アナログに興味を持つようになる。

子供の出産を機に武蔵野美術大学通信課程油絵学科に入学。そこで感覚的に描く抽象画に出会う。

抽象画に出会ったことで、今までなんとなく見ていた風景の視点が変わる。
表面しか見えてなかった風景。

それが、自然の持つ色の奥深さ、何一つ同じものがない自然の形状、古びたものの経過した時間、偶発的に出会った造形の面白さや明暗のリズム、日常に目にする身近な風景の中にこそ美しいものが存在することを知る。

それを自分の中に蓄積して直感的に作業をし、自分の中に積み重なった記憶、気持ちのゆらぎ、それぞれ影響し合う感情を手で考え制作している。その時間、その場所でしか出会えない自分の内面を抽象で表現している。

2016年に大学を卒業。その後は公募展に入選するなど、国立新美術館、大阪市立美術館、原田の森美術館の展示会に出展。そのほかグループ展を企画。ギャラリーの展示会に参加など。
抽象画家「児玉明美」として活動継続中。

Akemi Kodama
I was born in Chiba,Japan. I live in Takarazuka City, Hyogo.
I graduated from the Department of Western Culture at Women’s Junior College.
In 2016, I graduated from Musashino Art University Department of Oil Painting.
Digital image member, Syunyo-kai member

After working for an IT company, I studied design by myself and became a freelancer.
My main work is related to digital design such as corporate web design, groupware screen design, and Photoshop-related writing.
 In 2000, I passed “Digital Image” and worked as a digital artist “Akemi Kodama”.
Because I mainly produced digitally, I became interested in analog.


When I gave birth to a child, I enrolled in the Musashino Art University correspondence course oil painting course. There I encountered an abstract painting that I sensually draw.

Because I came across an abstract painting, my view of the scenery I had been seeing until now changed.
 Until then, It was a landscape that only the surface was visible.

That is the depth of the color that nature has, the shape of nature that has nothing identical, the elapsed time of an old thing, the fun of modeling accidentally encountered, the rhythm of light and dark, etc.
I know that there are beautiful things in the familiar scenery that you see in everyday life.


 I accumulate it in my own hands and work intuitively, and think and produce by hand the memories accumulated in me, the fluctuations in my feelings, and the emotions that affect each other. At that time, I express myself as an abstraction that I can only meet at that place.

In 2016 I graduated from university. After that, he was selected for public exhibitions and exhibited at exhibitions at the National Art Center, Osaka City Museum of Art, and Harada no Mori Art Museum.
Other group exhibitions are planned. Participating in gallery exhibitions.
I am currently active as an abstract painter “Akemi Kodama”.

Hobbies: watching movies, listening to music, going on a trip, going to a public bath, drinking, eating
