From Vancouver, Canada, daughter of a Japanese father and Dutch mother. Her artistic practise is a sensitive reflection of the world we live in. Searching, asking, learning and creating, there develops divergent yet agreeable expressions of contemporary art.
A graduate from the Emily Carr College of Art and Design in Vancouver, British Columbia. She travels internationally developing her art businesses.
Raw canvas tableaus of organic expressions lead beyond the surface of the colours and sculpturally to an awareness of nature, the earth and self.
Japanese papers, fibres, fish, paint, pencil, body, canvas, wood, wire - paintings, prints, installations , sculpture, performance: create form and architecture of space.
Nature is perfectly at home with itself and man is the only creature we know of that creates its own environment. And then what environment does one create? What imaginary worlds do we create in our minds then in reality.
