<Biography & Contact>


I was born in Kyoto, Japan.
I grew up in a very traditional environment. My parents were engaged in making a traditional textile called Obi. Obi is a long, broad sash tied around the waist over a Japanese Kimono. There were many kinds of colorful silk thread to weave Obi in my house and this influenced my artistic sense.

My interest in painting increased as I grew up. I studied oil and acrylic painting at Kyoto University of Education. After graduation from university I taught fine art in public schools for ten years.

I have been interested in abstraction rather than realistic painting in recent years.
Watermedia, such as watercolor and acrylic, is best suited for me to express my subjects more freely. I would like to share my vision with as many people as possible.
