I make silk paintings with nihonga pigments that depict the power and phenomena of things invisible to the eye.
I paint the gods and creatures from old Japan in an exploration of the spirit of people who anthropomorphized supernatural phenomena.
To make these motifs more identifiable to the viewer, I imbue the works with empathy and the kind of charm that invites a laugh.
I also paint things like fantasy animals, humans, plants, and sceneries.
I like an antique-feel reminiscent of old Japanese artmaking techniques, ink washes, and old Chinese painting, and I often paint atop a surface that I have purposefully stained to exude the weightiness and depth that comes with time.
I often investigate sixth-sense accounts and collect old folklore stories, and instill them in my paintings.
