DESCRIPTION


About the Artist

A Brief History

After growing up in Japan, I moved to Australia in 2005. The bright sun and surrounding colours have always struck me deeply and so, I started painting landscapes.  Soon after beginning to paint, I became especially interested in water as a subject. Its movement, depth, colours, reflections, mood and tranquillity. It is so ephemeral and fragile. I am fascinated trying to grasp those moments and recreate my experience of water on the canvas.
