Growing up as a half Japanese & half Caucasian ethnically ambiguous person, I’ve never felt like I belonged to a culture. This experience of marginalization has led me to take a special interest in themes of identity and social inclusion, as well as social anthropology. Other themes that come up in my art are vulnerability, transcendence, and mysticism. Making art is a way for me to examine my subconscious and explore my unique identity. Printmaking is my preferred medium, but I enjoy working in other mediums like painting and ceramics. Recently, I began making wearable art such as pins and hand-printed apparel. The main places that I exhibit my products are at craft sales. I make almost all of my prints at Max's Garage Press alongside incredibly talented artists that I am proud to call my print community. I graduated from University of California Berkeley with a BFA in Fine Art and currently reside in Berkeley, CA.
I am available for commercial illustration & design inquiries, gallery exhibitions, and art commissions.
