Suharu Ogawa is a Toronto-based illustrator. Her love for drawing started in a kindergarten art school after being kicked out of calligraphy class for refusing to convert to right-handedness. Formally trained in Art History and Cultural Anthropology, she worked for several years as a university librarian until her passion for illustration called her out of that career and into the pursuit of a lifelong dream. Since then, she has studied illustration at Ontario College of Art and Design University in Toronto, Canada.
Her name is pronounced as , pretty much how it’s spelled and named after Subaru (or Pleiades), an open star cluster in the constellation of Taurus, not after the car manufacturer, seriously.

小川すはる 1979年生まれ。米国北ケンタッキー大学卒業後、オハイオ州シンシナティ大学・大学院で美術史修士号取得。カリフォルニア州立大学サンバーナディーノ校にて美術資料室学芸員として勤務後、どうしてもイラストレーターになるという夢を諦める事が出来ず、カナダに渡りイラストレーションの勉強を始める。2014年オンタリオ美術デザイン大学(Ontario College of Art and Design University)デザイン学部イラスト科卒業。「一枚の絵は一千語に匹敵する」”A picture is worth a thousand words”という言葉の通り、強いコンセプトと表現力によって人々に色々なメッセージを伝える事の出来るイラストレーターを目指す。
名前の「すはる」は『枕草子』の一節、「星はすばる、ひこぼし、明星、夕つつ、よばいぼしをだにまからましかば、まして」に由来。
