Yellow and Black Photography Quote (1).p

“After facing the darkness, the light is much warmer than any light.”

My room is my studio.

Take a breath of the new dawn
and make it a part of you.
-native american-
People always want to see the light.
It's easy to turn away from the darkness and put it off.
But if you look closely at the darkness, you will find
But if you look carefully, you will find that there are many important lessons from our ancestors and wisdom to live by in the future.

After facing the darkness
After facing the darkness, the light is much warmer than any light.
I believe it will become a treasure that we can give to those around us.

I draw in the environment in which I raise my children.

“OIRAN” is an old Japanese culture; it means the high-class prostitute who works in “Yoshiwara”, where is licensed by the Shogunate.
They are gorgeous, beautiful, and seem to be “above the sky”.
However, they can’t go out, and they have to live in a small world like “birds in the cage”.
And I think their lives are monotonous, and very harsh.
Some of them were passed away by disease, and some of them wanted a true love from their customer…

All of my work begins when the children are asleep.

Everyday I am surrounded by boundless creativity.

The effect of art: I study art from the viewpoint of art therapy and clinical psychology.

I want to use art mainly for the next generation of children.

Though they were ”under the low-hanging clouds”, they tried to be strong and beautiful
Also, they were rivals, sisters in arms, and teachers each other.
They had immeasurable impressive stories as women’s lives.
And I thought, “The real purity isn’t an innocent thing, that doesn’t know the darkness, but also, might be decisiveness and strength, that can control the darkness with the love, like a lotus flower.”
It is drawn on these pictures that goddesses with cool expressions lead this crazy world by destroying and regeneration.

The real purity isn’t an innocent thing, that doesn’t know the darkness, but also, might be decisiveness and strength, that can control the darkness with the love, like a lotus flower.

I forgive and love all of me-
Everyday I am surrounded by boundless creativity.
Feathers of many colours,
The free yet carefully directed veins of leaves, the trunks of trees
Little pink paws of animals
A girl dancing with her back straight and cute round forehead
A friend, awaiting new life with twinkling eyes
A friend, with beautiful elegant hands
A friend, perceptive, with an exquisite voice
A friend, with clear green eyes
A friend, with a big warm back as big and warm as the heart

As new life is born so it creates.
In this very moment, new life is born, creating the world as it comes
into the world.

I don't usually pray much, but recently I realized that when I paint, I am praying and wishing for something.

Describe your image

Now I congratulate you on a sliver of courage born inside you.
Everything is new again.
Tears become beautiful jewels-

I realize time and time again that none of these things are to be
taken for granted.
The surrounding beauty and its powerful existence is creating who I am.

Tasting the very beauty of existence, I also feel the fear and
helplessness of loss and letting go.
The pain of separation and the strenuous efforts to come are not easy.

Still, in everything I do I will not forget "joy".
As I cherish all that has come before me, I will continue creating what is new.

Tasting the very beauty of existence, I feel the fear and helplessness of loss and letting go. And the pain of separation and the strenuous efforts to come are not easy.

I drew this work when I noticed my youngest daughter had a congenital disorder and fought against it.
I put my wish for her to have a journey.
Journey does not only mean to go far away, but also to have “spiritual journey”.
I am drawing with the growth of my youngest daughter, who is showing me the wonderful views that is different views from my two older children.
And, I want to know your dream, though I don’t know you yet.
It would be a great one.

Our need for art differs as we live our lives.

You sneak out for a walk while I sleep.
It's a great adventure and a very happy experience to have in your life.
I want you to have lots of walks, so I will teach you every day about the dangers of life.
But there might be a few injuries.
I pretend to be asleep sometimes.
and I make a wish.
"I love you so much. Have a lot of fun and come back safely."

But it is because of the times we live in now that I believe art is needed more than ever.

"Grief is like the ocean, it comes and goes like the waves. Sometimes it's very peaceful, but sometimes it's violent. The only thing we can do is to learn to swim," I kept thinking of someone's words as I painted.
I don't usually pray much.
I don't usually pray much, but recently I realized that when I paint, I am praying and wishing for something.
My thoughts and prayers are really tiny, but...
Don't force yourself to smile, I've always loved you and always will.

As new life is born. So it creates.

It's like a dream I had one day.
Or like someone's wishful thinking.
Or maybe it's heaven.
Or maybe it's where you used to live.
I expressed a place that I feel nostalgic and love for some reason.
I've always been here.
I'll always be here, and I'll always be by your side.
and I'm always traveling.
The journey for me is to interact with you and watch you grow.
It's so wonderful, so happy.
It is a precious journey that will not last forever.
It is a precious journey.
The feeling of living with you.
I may have expressed the feeling of living with you in this painting.
