Influenced by my grandmother, who painted Japanese-style paintings, I grew up seeing rock paints from a young age. I loved seeing so many beautiful colors, as light as sand.
I also loved the colors of the scales and hair of the mermaid sisters in the picture book I saw as a child, "Ningyohime," and the colors of the Sailor Senshi in the anime "Sailor Moon.
My childhood fascination with rich colors was the beginning of my love for drawing.
I want to paint pictures that expose people's hearts. I want to draw pictures that restore the power of life, pictures that make you feel awakened, that make you feel surprised.
In a world of calamity, fear, anxiety, worry, impatience, sadness, anger, and information chaos. It is a world where, if you are not careful, you can be swallowed up by the darkness in the blink of an eye. I want to convey the message that we should not let such things invade our minds.
I hope that those who see my paintings will not be deceived by anything other than themselves, that they will not lie to their own hearts, and that they will believe in their own strength.
May everyone let the light of their own hearts shine out into this world.
And I want to send warm energy that gently embraces people.
