I am an artist creating sculptures and installation work primarily; however, I make paintings and drawings too. I use hand cast resin with stainless steel, copper and brass wires. Also I use Kozo and Gampi and flax paper pulp with wires for some works. I am interested in the idea of interconnectedness of things- human beings with nature, society, science and technologies. I hope I can bring people together regardless of different origin, gender, age through my works.
