"Contemporary" X "Tradition" 


My art evolves as I search through my roots and history of art. 

I find the beauty in the merging spot of "now" and "then". 

My practice is to find the fine border of "Contemporary" and "Japanese"

by abstract expression, where I can be free to be nobody at the sometime be part of everybody.

"Summit Artspace's new show FUSION gives artists free reign to interpret the physical, science-based world through the creative lens of the human imagination.  FUSIN opens Friday, May 13, with a free artist reception, 5-8 p.m., in Summit Artspace Gallery. The show runs through June 18, 2016. It is free and open to the public.
FUSION brings together works by artists who embrace science as an inspiration for art--from the precision of medical illustrations to the awe-inspiring forms discovered through bio-mimicry.
For more information and a preview of the art, click here."
