An established artist with works held by numerous prestigious public and private collections, including the Sigg Collection and Benjamin Sigg Collection.

One of Japan’s leading contemporary artists’ who is recognised for her skillfully crafted paintings. Her works are said to be reminiscent of traditional Japanese Heinan Buddhist and “Bijinga” artworks, which are named after the city Kyoto. The artist repeats a painting and sanding process, layering acrylic paintwork to create mystical settings which depict her philosophies of inner beauty. Her works often feature portraits of beautiful young Asian female subjects in pinewood gardens, shy fully hiding a gaze and drifting in the atmosphere or postured in an acceptable, provocative fashion amongst the backdrop of a Japanese dream garden. With calm movements, a sensitive and careful brush stroke, layers overlap to form a misty and imaginary world, beautiful lines and flows form, transpiring her dreams of beauty onto the canvas.
