I was born in Yokohama, Japan, and was an exchange student in the north shore of Chicago. I attended college both in Japan and the U.S., and lived for many years in northern California and Florida before settling in Chicago in 2000. I maintain a studio in the vibrant artists' community of Zhou B Art Center in the Bridgeport section of Chicago. For the past four years I have been engaged in the creation of the series I call "Terra." In this body of work my effort has been to express the holistic vibrancy of nature. Overt political message is absent from my work; rather, I want to express the fundamental energy permeating our world, of which we are a part.
