Biography:
 Welcome to my site. I am truly grateful for the opportunity to present some of my works of art to you.

I was born and raised in Miyazaki, Japan. Since I was a small child, I have always loved art especially painting. In 1981, I decided to move to Vancouver. During my early years in Canada, I actively pursued painting in my spare time, however,my artistic drive died down as I became too busy with day to day work and further studies in English. Gradually I seemed to have gone into a permanent artistic hibernation and so it remained for many years.

Then one day in the fall of 2004, something quite extraordinary happened while I was visiting the Britannia Library. I came across a book called Paper Arts. Little did I know that this book would bring about an artistic reawakening,releasing me from my long hibernation.

My love affair with washi, handmaid Japanese papers began with this book and from the very first moment that I laid my eyes on the washi doll "Oiran" created by American doll artist, Mr. Dan Fletcher, I was entranced. Not only was I mesmerized by his exquisite creation, but I was also intrigued by the amazing malleability of washi as an art medium. The more that I learned of his work, the stronger my desire grew to create my own washi doll.

Following my instinctive passion, I created my first washi doll and was quite pleased with the end result. I created a second one and the third one and I have been creating washi dolls ever since, all purely for my own enjoyment.

As an inspired amateur doll artist, I cannot tell you just how much this exhibition means to me. With this website, I would like to share my washi doll world with you.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my site.
