Using animal motifs, I express everyday scenes that catch my eye through copperplate prints and watercolors.

In particular, the production process for copperplate engraving has remained almost unchanged since medieval Europe, and even today it takes a huge amount of time to look at a single plate.

In today's world, where information and time flow at breakneck speed, art takes a completely opposite path and can be disheartening when things don't go as planned.
Rather, I continue to create works with the belief that this act of "taking the time to face something" is what is needed in the world today.
