Being from a small island in southern Japan, I always had the desire to learn something different and new about this world. I was able to travel to Europe and the United States to get another view about what is happening around me. I never was taught how to paint or carve wood and this just came naturally. It all came out through art and the feelings from all the emotions that I was going through at those times.

The first time I decided to paint and draw something was when I was pregnant with my daughter. I decided to paint a picture. I knew nothing about painting. This was all new to me. After that first painting I realize that I cannot live without artwork in my life. It is a part of me and being that I am still alive I found out what I want to do for the rest of my life. Artwork keeps me alive and staying alive make me do artwork. I can not do anything else and I don't want to do anything else.

Carving wood was not something that I ever considered to be doing. But the woods that I used were all going to be taken away to the dump. These pieces were given a new life and became a treasure instead of trash. Most of this wood would have rotted and turned into soil but I was looking at them in a different way. I gave the wood a new life like carving and creating something important from something that was neglected and going to be tossed away. Each piece has a story to tell. I didn't give any of these pieces a name because each one might tell a story that you might have lived through.
