I am a Japanese American born in Hagåtña, Guam. I am currently learning direct carving and experimenting with various forms of stone sculpture, bas relief and etching.
My work is largely experimental. I enjoy exploring figurative and abstract sculpture, and I have an affinity for contrasting materials and themes. However, the enjoyment comes from the process of making; the thinking and trying out of ideas, and the physical aspect; flame heating, forging, hand sawing, chiseling, pounding and polishing.
I am interested in divergent themes relating to human experience such as phenomenology and the collective unconscious, mythology and symbolism, nature and fairy tales.
My current projects are largely influenced by Japanese aesthetics; minimalism, Zen Gardens, tea ceremony and pop culture.
