Hi, Thank you for visiting my page.

*Artist Statement*

I was born in a small town of northern Kyushu Island of Japan in early Spring. I was a shy child and liked looking for fairies in grass and reading adventure stories from my gigantic book case. My parents were great patrons of cultures and art and made sure I had many opportunities to grow artistically. It seemed like I have been painting and drawing from my first breath. My school note books are filled with drawings.

My professional art career started in the graphic arts field in Fukuoka, Japan in the early 1990s. After graduating from Seinan Gakuin University with a BA degree in French and Nihon interior design school with a BA degree in design and rendering, I founded Atelier Yume-Tsumugi Ltd. I operated that studio successfully for 5 years and emphasized working on a variety of projects with varying requirements rather than a distinct style.

In 1998, I broadened the scope of my endeavors to include projects in the United States. In the US, I decided to start concentrate on oil painting ... When we tap into our powers of imagination, we are blooms of possibilities.
