"Colors and shapes are my inspirations."
The colors I adore and the shapes I feel comfortable with bring me unlimited creations. They are often unexpected and surprising. It is about feeling more and thinking less. While in process, I start seeing more and more details. Then I notice the message, which gives me a clear direction to finish the piece.
"Art that leads to your own fantasy world…."
My desire for intricate design comes from my childhood experience with a beautiful poster I had in my room. It had so many details that I never got bored looking at it. To create art that draws you in…forgetting time, space and self is my goal.
I was born and grew up in a little town called Arashiyama, an important sightseeing district in Kyoto, Japan. As a child, I enjoyed drawing and making things with my creative grandfather. I started art lessons at the age of 15. After 4 years of graphite sketching and watercolor training, I entered Kyoto University of Art and Design graduating in 1997. I have never stopped painting since then.
