Recent Work

My paintings are about how color and the brushwork interact to create an intimate and harmonious pictorial space.  I have no preconception as to what I am about to paint.  I simply start painting and assume that the painting will resolve itself in the process.

Nature has always been an abiding inspiration and influence in my work. However as an artist, I cannot discount all the experiences that one encounters in life, the art works in history that I have seen, and the fact that I was born in Japan must certainly enter in.  I am so grateful to have painting in my life, because the act of painting tends to dispel my feelings of insecurity and anxiety that frequently cloud my consciousness.
