I respect and love plants as cohabitants living together with us on this beautiful earth. My art pieces are made with common wild plants found around us. I focus on the charm of the plants that people do not usually notice and I make small delicate sculptures, video work and Installation art with them. Sometimes, I incorporate the history or stories of the exhibition place into my artwork. Some of my recent exhibitions are the Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale in Nigata, Japan(2015), and the Biwako Biennale in Shiga, Japan(2018). I also participated in the Rokko Meets Art in Hyogo, Japan(2019) where I won the grand prize. Outside Japan, I participated in the exhibition "Moving Plants" at the Rønnebæksholm Art Museum in Næstved, Denmark in the summer of 2017. At that time, I stayed one month and made my artwork with plants from around the museum.
