I was born in 1961 in Gifu Prefecture, Japan. My father loves Japanese painting. He teaches me the pleasure of painting and I loved to scribble when I was a child. I am a self-taught artist, and have never studied in formal art school. I studied law in university and started oil painting by myself at that time. I had my solo exhibition when I was 24. Since then, I held more than 30 solo-exhibitions at Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, Shizuoka, Chiba and New York. At the age of 29, I stayed in England about 1 year as a volunteer for people with disabilities. I was attracted by the beautiful European landscape. Since then, I changed my style of painting.

In my artworks, did you recognize there are elderly people, people with wheelchair and woman pushing a baby carriage? I am working in an organization which supporting the people with disabilities. I would like to express the Utopia could contains different kinds people living together in peace. I always draw a fried egg-like sun on my painting which is a symbol of my work as well as the symbol of brightness.

I love traveling. I traveled more than 40 countries. Asia, Europe, North and South America…Different cultures and different landscapes always inspire me.
