When did your love for art begin?
I have had an interest in art since I was a little girl and I developed my technique over the years. For 3 years I have been using acrylic colors for my paintings.

Where do you find inspiration?
I am inspired by everyday emotions, fun, happiness, sadness, the beautiful colors of the sky and flowers, and the scents in our lives.

What is the most challenging part of your work?
I use acrylic paints, and since I am trying to make the paint smooth, I need to finish it before it dries. So it is very difficult because if I stop my hand for a while, the paint will dry.

What other particular things influence your work?
I love the cute girls in Japanese anime and manga, so my painting style is influenced by them.

How would you describe yourself?
I express myself by projecting myself into the girls‘ drawings. With the touch of the painting knife, the gradation of colors, and the way I apply the matiere of paint, I express the fluidity of the mind and emotions, the fragility and strength of a girl’s heart.

What plans do you have?
So far, I have mainly exhibited in Japan, so I would like to challenge myself to exhibit overseas and have a solo exhibition in the future. I also dream of collaborating with great artists and musicians.
