My life long connection to Japanese art techniques and esthetics is seen in my artwork. Through my brush strokes, stitched and carved marks on paper, textile or wood, I express feelings of movement, connections and flow. Dots and circles are used repeatedly in my work to express my beliefs of the connections we share with others and our planet.
I have instructed students and classroom teachers as an Artist in the Schools and as an Advanced Teaching Artist of Hawai’i since 1983 to the present. My work has received awards from the Hawaii State Foundation on Culture and the Arts, the International Quilt Association, and The Big Island Art Guild, my work is in personal collections from Japan to Europe.
During the SOKO Studio Tour my work can be seen at SKEA
