Here are some words from the artist herself.
As I have this opportunity to come closer to nature, people and myself I am celebrating life and love again. I liberate my spirit to understand ‘unknown’ to be ‘known’.
I think I kept something mysterious inside that came out in reality in the form of expression through various media. This exhibition is an attempt to showing my love and tribute to Japan
