Born in Osaka Japan. Spent formative years in the U.S. Lived and worked in Mexico between 2012 to 2019. Currently based in Osaka.


My artistic practice is fed by a personal need for constant 

clarity and order in a life full of whims and uncertainties. 

Paradoxically, I’m equally drawn to counter forces of order that bring about obscurity.  I interact with various materials and objects that inspire me to explore the realm between control and letting go. I work methodically, but also welcome happenstance. My goal is to create an ideal balance between the two modes.
