My main concept is the communication of one's thought and perceptions. Or in other words,
One's feelings… Within my knowledge of the world, I am expressing
and beauty of human beings through the medium of art.
I am always living my everyday life with three elements in my mind.
They are to
observe, to listen, and to express.
By these elements, I create myself and its image, while
affirming the "self."
