I work with a pair of scissors and the precision of a surgeon to transform paper into intricately detailed designs and delicate, almost lace-like patterns.  Inspired by Matsuo Basho’s haiku and the writings of Charles Baudelaire and Voltaire, I extract passages and transform them into meticulous works of art that appear to be laser cut.  I am also inspired by nature, fantasy and elements of my native Japanese culture.  I mix traditional and modern styles to produce a unique world of images, one that resonates with wonder, ethereal beauty and magnificent detail.
