I was born in a town near Tokyo, Japan. Now live in Tokyo.
I was involved in the art world on and off in contemporary stage plays, producing
images and butoh around 1974.
I have been doing almost self-taught painting since I was overwhelmed by
Salvador Dali's work at the age of 15.
I have three children, two daughters and one son, and after I had the last child in
1987, I undertook a distance course at university thinking to broaden my
knowledge. I studied art history, aesthetics and visual culture managed to obtain
two bachelor's degrees.
In 1998 I published a small book called "A Closed Garden".
