Profile
 Born in Japan.
 Graduated from Musashino Art Univ. majored in fashion design in Tokyo.
 Originally her artworks are made by very primitive material and technique. But she sought the way to express her concept of works simply, then think of using animation. To get the technique of making animation, she worked as a 3DCG creator for some years. And also continued making artworks in analogue way. Then she started her real activity as a contemporary artist.
 Through the exhibition in Japan, Paris, Shanghai and other cities, now she is spreading her activity to the world gradually. In 2007, she started living in Shanghai which is her favorite city since before, now she does activities as an artist there.

Statement
  Sometimes people think and talk about 'What is Art?', and try to find the answer though they never can't get the right answer. Art is often thought as difficult and high-toned thing, but most of the Art come from the people's ordinary life. Artist is just one of the ordinary people, Artist is just cutting off the part of these ordinary life, and shape it into their artworks.
  Artist can't exist at the place without peaceful life. Real art may exist in battlefield, but Artist can't live in battlefield. 'Existence of Artist' could be proof of Peaceful, and Artist should be aware of that fact.
  Practically, Artworks are useless and nothing for use. But they sometimes give us little happiness, sometimes become the source of great power, I'll try to bring out these kind of feelings or power to the people's life. That's my job as an Artist.
