welcome to my website. :)
I'm a local Japanese-Tasmanian artist living and working in Hobart. After finishing my BFA with Honours at the University of Tasmania, I have been continuing on exhibiting and creating art in the city I really love.
You'll find me sitting in cafes making Copic marker drawings, or painting in my studio.
I've recently realised that I could possibly categorise myself as a 'genre' painter - I most often portray the casual, familial and ordinary lives of those around me, the people I love. The activities the figures in my works engage in are simple and portray a common lifestyle, past and present - though I create my works with sentimental and nostalgic intentions.
If I could pick a word or a phrase to encapsulate it all, it would be: 'longing (for family)'.
I post most frequently to my Instagram - check me out there for more of my works, and my current endeavours :)
