S t a t e m e n t


My concept is about relationship Art and Spirituality. 

I explore the connection between spirituality and artistic expression.


During meditative states, I transfer the true nature of the inner unconscious


behind the mental and emotional phenomena on the art works.


In particular, I focus in capturing the expressions of the essential soul.


I believe that art expression (especially abstract expression) is


influenced directly by the state of the creator’s spirit.


I create abstract art using a variety of mixed media techniques,


incorporating materials like pastels, ink, pencils, acrylics, and sand.


My art work’s inspirations are from abstract expressionism, psychology,


spirituality including Shintoism, Buddhism, Astrology, and Nature.
