I was born in Kyoto, Japan and grew up in Osaka.
When I was a little girl, I enjoyed working on coloring books. One of my favorite classes in Elementary and Middle school was Art class.
My long-time desire was to start painting again. I wished that someday I could have time to paint.
My life was busy with study, work, and raising a family. Since Middle school I did not have time to focus on painting. After a long time passed, and all of my children have grown up, I had more time for myself. In November of 2018, I took a watercolor painting class that Cathy Winter was teaching in Ridgefield. The class reignited to my passion for painting. I have been painting nearly every day since starting that class.
In watercolor painting it is very interested to see how water move the pigment to create beautiful colors. I feel like I am just a helper for the water and paint to make a beautiful picture. I watch and I am amazed at their work.
Painting gives me a lot of joy and happiness. If you can feel this though my paintings I will be very happy.
Now I am inspired and excited to be painting!
