I was born in 1974, and I currently live and work in Kariya, Japan. I’ve enjoyed drawing ever since I was young. Back then, that was how I expressed myself. However, in school, I studied subjects that were completely unrelated to art. After graduating from junior college, I worked as a company clerk. In 2000, I got married, and over the next several years, I gave birth to three daughters. This inspired me to start taking photographs. In 2015, I began to focus more on the artistic aspects of photography. Since then, I have been displaying my work worldwide.
【Artist Statement 】
Currently, I am trying to represent my internal world - such as my past experiences or the thoughts that have forged my identity - through photographs. This is a self-healing process. It's as if I am picking up the pieces of my memory and putting them together like a puzzle.
