Largely self-trained, I am an artist driven by the desire to enrich peoples lives. I am passionate about making and sharing my art and introducing Japanese Painting, Nihonga, to more American audiences.
Through more than 10 years of Japanese language studies, cross cultural communication has been a constant in my daily life. I believe that the best way to communicate the richness of a culture is visually. Through the exploration of the art of other people, we can further understand their cultures, and at the same time, ourselves. I aim to use art to bring the people of two countries I love closer together.
My greatest strength is my tenacity and my unyielding movement towards my dream - to create art that brings people closer and makes them feel more human.
