I'm self-taught artist originally from Japan. After earning bachelor degree of Hispanic Studies at Kyoto University of Foreign Studies, I moved to Mexico where I worked as a travel agent and graphic designer. I fell in love with Mexico and started family raising my three kids. I currently live in New Jersey, USA working as Teaching Artist.
Traveling between East and West has challenged me to accept and adapt a new cultural environment. Creating art is my way to build a bridge across cultural barriers and bring diverse people on a journey to an imaginary world. I also enjoy teaching Origami, watercolor, Sumi drawing and Japanese folkloric art and crafts.
