Although I was born in Munich, Germany in 1986, I grew up in Ibaraki prefecture, Japan.
I currently live in Lyon, France.
Growing up between my father, a sculptor, and my mother, a potter, I have cultivated a sense of creativity since I was young.
I studied textiles at Tohoku University of Art & Design and graduated in 2009.
While wondering about what existence is, I make artworks using natural objects such as plants, minerals, and shells, and artworks inspired by natural objects.
Looking at the connections between people, plants, animals, insects, flowers, the earth and the universe, I imagine fictional plants.
