Poetry and Art: Behind the Process

I take things from one world and put them in another - I want to merge the paradoxical and convey belonging - I want to etch my very being across the canvas - and then erase it all together. I build lies from truths and truths from lies, to just accept it all. I spend my days searching through nonsense and chaos because I am a little disconnected and what I look for are connections and feelings.

For in my paintings, I see people.

----------------------------------------------------

I am a Japanese-American residing in the US.

I like all things ambiguous: For much of those things end up being the inspiration for my artwork... Plus the thousand other thoughts I end up skipping to and hopping over if I don't get a chance to record them down.

Through words, marks, colors, or photography. And that is why I love art.

I have also published my own poetry book.

    I want to capture in my paintings a beauty and profound depth and complexity of the personal being. I want to paint to convey in the language of poetry.
