About

I am a Japanese artist who was born and grew up in Japan and currently lives in the United States.

Before saying anything about my shop & my art, please let me ask all of you a favor as a Japanese. *~* Please keep praying for the people of Japan*~*
As a Japanese myself, please let me ask all of you one favor. Probably you all know about recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan. The affected regions are so vast that it would take years to rebuild destroyed cities. Despite of all troubles that are still in their lives, many people are trying to move on with incredible positiveness & strength, appreciating support that is now coming from all directions.

The affected regions are so vast that it would take years to rebuild destroyed cities.

However, there is also a sad truth that overwhelming amount of encouragement from outside seems to be causing frictions between some people, and sometimes even deepening the emotional woulds of those who have lost so much in their lives. Sometimes, it is hard to give right support when you are living far away. But, your prayer could help their spirits greatly at this very moment. So, while you continue to do whatever you can to support them, please keep sending them your prayers. As one Japanese myself, I am truly amazed with the kindness and generosity being sent to the people of Japan. Thank you so much for your support!
*~ * About My Shop & My Art *~*
My basic concept of my art making is probably the mixture of old and new, East and West. I love mixing traditional realistic shapes with abstract shapes in one artwork. As spirituality also takes a important role in my life, you might find that many of my works are reflecting my personal lessons and are spiritually inspired as well.

Below is my brief resume:) (I omitted group shows here.)
