About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Artist
Location New York, NY, United States
Introduction I am originally from Japan where I studied Dressmaking and Fashion Design. After graduation, I worked as a Theatrical Costume Designer then moved to California in 2004 to explore my world. I found myself creating my world by using not only fabric and thread on a figure, but also with line, shape, value and color on a surface more freely. I studied Illustration at Academy of Art University in San Francisco where I had a great time to open my vision. I currently live in New York, working as an Painter/Illustrator.
