From childhood, the world of pictures and stories was close to me, and I picked up and drew only those things that I liked and pleased me.
Before I knew it, my sketchbook contained more and more fragments of marvelous creatures, weird objects, and fictitious plants, inhabiting a world that I myself had never foreseen.
My works pair matière with depth unique to copperplate engraving and monochrome prints imbued with warmth and moisture.
I feel that this combination better enables dialogue with viewers at a comfortable distance.
I strive to shed light on the landscapes sought by the depths of my soul as I continue making engravings on my desk, day after day.
In my works, I aim to create space for relaxing or exciting the mind while freely fantasizing.
