I worked as a graphic designer in an advertising agency and at the same time I studied Bingata, the Okinawan art of dyeing and stenciling kimono. After mastering the techniques I used them to paint mainly ﬂowers.
Afterwards I used stencilIng techniques to paint mainly wild ﬂowers.

My life’s work is oneness. I get ideas from the natural world and thank nature for the inspiration it gives me. My ideas come from all of nature - from trees, ﬂowers and the cosmos. All of nature is in my art. I get a lot of surprise, interest and gladness from my work and from the people who visit my exhibitions. When someone encounters my work and likes it this is synchronicity and this is why I continue.
