My main motifs are “things that has no shape or form such as light, wind, air as well as time, thoughts and other abstract ideas. I depict things that cant be held or touched by hands by cutting out a variety of shapes and rearrange them together like a collage. While I sometimes do take on the visible motifs including still life, flowers and animals, it is the meaning behind the presence of these objects that I place the most emphasis on. If I felt necessary, I would add a poem to help viewers interpret the artwork.
I also serve as the owner/director of Senga Art & Space Gallery in Tokyo where I host seasonal and special senga exhibitions. In addition, I collaborate with other senga artists to co-create artworks as well as to organize international exhibitions that would provide senga artists from around the world the opportunities to exhibit their works.
I am also active in promoting senga and washi to the new audiences both in Japan and abroad. During the summer, I host a traveling exhibition series with workshops for beginners.
As a senga artist and a gallery owner, I am involved in all phases of senga-related activities, from the production and exhibition of senga works to hosting of workshops and educational seminars.
