Heaven is high and the world is wide and we have unlimited possibilities. I would like to imagine myself as one who can change the energy around by adding a creative spark.
I am an artist and designer based in Tokyo, working in watercolors and digital techniques. I enjoy traditional technologies as much as advanced and find the crossroads very inspiring. My style is influenced by Japanese style painting, sumi-e, folklore art and decorative arts, I am inspired by art, design and cultural anthropology. My favorite themes are: folk art, circus, carnival, children, horses, animals and plants. I work on illustrations, surface design, patterns and, as well as this, multi media art installations.
I have been painting and drawing since I remember. Interested in art, design and cultural anthropology. I was always interested in how the way we perceive the world is depicted through the images we create, how the culture within which we have been raised influences the way we see the world and in decorative art as the need to beautify daily life with the images we feel connected to.
I have been working designer, illustrator and art director with clients such as The Peninsula Hotel Tokyo, Sony Digital, Toyota, Nikon and many others.
Besides painting I like reading, riding horses, spend my time in nature surroundings.
