I was born and raised in Japan (most of my life, I satyed in Tokyo.)
Before coming to America, I was an actress in Tokyo. But, after 10 years in the field, I am now pursuing other forms of expression.
Having been a model for several professional photographers, I developed a strong interest in working on the other side of lens. Now I am studying photography at an American college, and it is quickly becoming my main expressive outlet.
I find photography to be a most effective way to express my view of the world (inside and outside.) No matter what my subject is, I want to create images that tell a story. But it is my hope that every time people see my photographs, they will feel encouraged to interpret the images in their own way.
Art is my life power, and I am still finding ways to let it speak through me.
