I was born in an artist family in Kyoto.
My grand father and father are both Buddhist image sculptors. My uncle is a post-Rodin era sculptor.
It was very natural for me to pursue sculpture as a young artist since I profoundly enjoyed to create three dimensional objects and figurative works.
After learning both traditional and modern sculpture from my masters my interest grew into different fields of art such as painting, ceramic, space design etc.
Although they appear to be based on very different disciplines I consider them essentially the same as sculpture making in the process of artistic creation.
Sculpture is my artistic foundation, this is where I started my own creative journey and from where the journey continues.
