 — - -

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

geniality

strength

fragility

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."
