As a half Japanese, half Caucasian woman, I have always felt an inability to relate to one culture. This experience of marginalization has led me to take a special interest in themes pertaining to societal divides, imbalances of power, and alienation. The tensions created by these divides force a need for transcendence, both personal and social. I am currently exploring the different forms within printmaking and it is my preferred medium. Images of masks and severed limbs often appear in monochromatic dreamscapes where line is emphasized over color. Amongst the imagery of confinement and claustrophobia I want to promise the audience little glimpses of hope. I Graduated from University of California Berkeley with a BFA in Fine Art and currently reside in Berkeley, CA. I have been participating in lots of craft sales and it's been my main driving force to keep creating new work. I produce all of my prints at Max's Garage Press in Berkeley where there are incredibly talented artists that I am proud to have in my print community.
I am available for commercial illustration & design inquiries, gallery exhibitions, and art commissions.
