Her sculptures are well known for sharing unique world of fairy-like creatures, which are all so lively that they almost seem to move on their own. Her beloving creatures share in common soft and smooth texture and cream like feminine forme, which expresses sense of liveliness and pure happiness. Her works are also unique for having monotone color. The surface of the figures are milky white, which explains the creatures’ purity and innocence; and also leaves opportunities for the audience to imagine what color such creatures may be.
The process of creating works by her hands and instilling emotions to the works enables her to produce the stories of each creatures like a page of picture book. Her heartful emotions not only makes the creatures lively, but also warms the heart of the people visiting her world.

Artist’s Statement :
I focused on and tried to express a supple but forcible energy like colourful lights of a garden in spring. I found out that the vitality is about to be born and overflowing from my mind. The sense is like feminine strength and softness, and I felt that its carriage is somehow related to ”和”(Wa), which means harmony in Japanese. These concepts led me to employ new colours for my works.
When I make the shapes of creatures with stone clay and polish them, I get a moment of feeling of organic lives. Then I polish them more and complete the process of producing.
I believe that this is a great opportunity to see my works under the sunshine which brings different tastes throughout the day.
