About the ARTISt

As an artist, my goal is to create a platform where different voices and experiences can be documented, presented and and contemplated.

I am fascinated by how we form our identities.

I’m also fascinated by how cultural experiences influence our understanding of the world and people around us. I question why we came to believe in a certain idea or religion and how societal expectations influence us to behave in one way over the other.

My work seeks to unlock audiences’ mind to allow them to see an unfamiliar world or to simply find an emotional connection. I believe that by doing so we can begin to see past our differences and perhaps manifest positive changes in our society.

I was born and raised in Shizuoka, Japan. I left home at the age 17. Since then I've traveled around the world and lived in five different cities on two continents. THE PASSAGE CHRONICLES was born out of my own experience and is very close to my heart.

Thank you for visiting.
