I was born and grew up in Kyoto, Japan. In 1990, I had an opportunity to travel and study in England and Australia for several years, before eventually settling in London and starting a family. In 2006 I moved to Boston, Massachusetts.
I have always been interested in the creative arts, and particularly fascinated by the influence of art on architecture and design through the ages and across cultures. However, it was not until 2007, when I began a course in metalsmithing and jewelry making, that I found an outlet for my own creativity. Designing and creating unique pieces of jewelry felt like an awakening, and a perfectly natural way for me to express myself and my personal experiences across artistic and cultural borders.
My passion for envisioning new and innovative designs is never ending and transforming them into finished pieces has become my way of expressing the pleasure and wonder that art brings into our lives.
Due to my health conditions, it had been a slow progress in the past years, however, in 2018, my creations has been gradually returning.
