“It Will Happen”

“Piggy On My Back”

“Leaves For You”

“I am a free-lance painter and illustrator originally from Tokyo, Japan, now living in Gainesville, Florida. I studied art at Musashino Art University in Tokyo. My work is a combination of traditional Japanese sumi-e with my own style and approach to painting. When I paint, I try to capture the feeling I had when I first drew or painted. I always had a big smile when painting, and I believe all of us still have a beautiful child’s heart inside, even if we are grownups. I do not necessarily paint for or about children, but for the child in us all. When people look at my work and I see their eyes shining like a child’s, that makes me very happy.”
