Here are some words from the artist herself.
My work is as a result of searching inspiration by discovering places and objects. The drawings are about what I saw in Itoshima, inspired by some places, and observing the daily surrounding activities around the area. And putting them into playful drawing on to textile using Katazome technique, a traditional Japanese method of dyeing fabrics.
