“I create my works through experimenting with materials that reflect my life and my thoughts. Small, unpretentious and valueless things from our daily life often become my primary medium. I look for another language, energy, chaos and harmony, within quiet stillness.
I came from Japan in my young adult life, and I feel my works are often intuitive reactions to the American life that I have happily adopted, my art making is a visual journey of my life. Observing our environment is an exciting daily practice and nature’s phenomena…such as water, mist, shadows, wind are strong inspirations to form my works.”
