About

I really love SUNAE! (sand art)

I'm an artist based in Los Angeles, USA. Using shiny colorful sand(It's called Sunae in Japan), I make art portraying surreal people living in a real world with various everyday thoughts and emotions, such as joy, happiness, sorrow, and anxiety.
When I make Sunae, I'm always inspired to live life brightly each day just like the sparkly shiny sand that gracefully slips through my hands and fingers. It is a very unique and meaningful material for me to work with, and I enjoy it very much.

I began making Sunae in 2004. Since 2007, I've been participating in a wide range of art projects/exhibits outside of Japan, including United States, Italy, France, Switzerland, Korea etc. My ultimate goal is to familiarize people with Sunae around the world!
