I like to draw paintings since I was a child.
I keep drawing until there isn’t any space to draw before I noticed and the work finishes while I didn’t know it’s done.That’s what it always is.
The motif are anything like vehicles,buildings,animals and people which have various personalities etc...It’s fun to get feel for expanding the world that I create.
 I majored in Sculpture at University.
Although I studied one way like human body sculprure and abstract sculpture, still something wasn’t quite right for me. At that time,I curiously felt excited to worked on the sculpture of four-legged creatures.
Since then, I have focused on creating animals and I have come to like it.
 Currently the major of my activity is pottery.
Partly use lacquer, glass, and resein but basically persue the texture,color,shape of firing work.
Both three-dimentional object and plane are mostly the exquisite works which have a lot of characters, and the theme is letting these works tell one story.
I would like to create the work that make you feel clam and fun.
