With my artwork I hope to create for people a certain airy feeling or ambiance.
For example, when experiencing nature, one feels the sensation of being there, existing in that place. It's the same feeling when on an ordinary day a person placed
in the city can experience spontaneity in an unexpected setting.

Much of my pieces are abstract expressions made through dyeing composite materials, but occasionally there are parts with more concrete expressions too.
As much of my work is dyeing, the images come through the combination of resins and other factors. Although this is one part that remains throughout, I find myself more concerned with the expressions that comes forth as different materials merge.
I hope it is possible for those who view my work to experience the feeling of air, in light of memories and also the scenes and emotions connected to them.
