I am creating the slices of life scenes. They are from my memories or imaginations.
Cloud in the sky which I looked above during a walk, glimpsed evening glow between buildings, street corners on the trip. All of the momentary scenes are my View Collection.
I also like to draw portrait of plants. I think that everything such as a plant, a bicycle and a cloud has feelings. I try to keep these scenes with atmosphere.
I employed printmaking to visualize my collection. There are many processes to finish a print, however I love even complicated process and its indirect way.Using primary color, such as yellow, red and blue on each plate, gradually get completed image and harmony in color.
Making lithographs became my life work. I would like viewers to feel like just on my point of view and make them happy through my art.
