Water is an important element in my art work.

 

I use water to let colors flow freely into the canvas.

 

I grew up in Katsuura, another small beach town in the east of Japan. I studied Scenic Art for Theater at Temple University in Philadelphia and was trained to reproduce someone else's art on stage (which is also exciting work to do!).

 

It is important for me to work on my own independent painting projects. In my own work, I like to express where I am from and who I am, sort of like my identity. I appreciate the culture and tradition of my country. It is comforting for me to paint the subjects that remind me of my home. I hope my paintings can deliver a similar kind of comfort to you as well.
