On Etsy since 2016

I was born in a small village close to Mt.Fuji in Yamanashi prefecture, Japan. At my young days, I helped and played at my parents' farm. It was an opportunity to have exposure to great nature, which cultivated my way of seeing in real and imaginary world.

I moved to the States in my early 30's. I've worked as a full timel artist in Seattle last 20 years.

I acquired my ceramic training through apprenticeship. My cartooning and drawing are self-taught. Regardless what the material and method I use, my goal is to create pieces to tell stories which make people happy.

My work naturally reflects my background: Japanese art, comic strip and calligraphy. At the same time, I find myself not to belong to any particular style nor idea. I am happiest being a unique facet to output positive messages to anybody in this diverse world.

I present my work primarily at Pike Place Market since 2003. I enjoy meeting people from all over the world and get direct feedback. Besides Pike Place, several local galleries, Kobo, Venue Ballard and Venture at Market have been showing my work.

When I am not in my studio, I enjoy playing marimba or walking in nature.
