I was born in Osaka, Japan. I moved to the United States at the age of 14.
My artistic inspirations still came from my grandmother who was a sumi-artist. Each brush stroke was important, and she started teaching me when I was in first grade.
As I a teenager in western art history, I learned that the color "black" was different from what I knew culturally as "black".
In Japan, the color "black" came from Sumi (burned cocal) but in western culture black was mixed with "Ultramarine", "Burnt Umber", "Prussian blue", "Alizarin " and "Burnt Sienna". This fastination took me thorugh my under-graduate degree to graduate school. Altough, I did not completed graduate school, my fastination with color is still reflected in my design & art.
What I do
I have a unique blend of talents that allow me to offer such a diverse range of service.About
