In my work I bring together old and new icons and images from American and Japanese culture. These combinations of images represent the history of two cultures as well as my personal thoughts about the world I am experiencing. As a modern artist I begin my work by computer manipulation, collaging, and the printing of images. I then return to the formal art techniques of painting and metal leafing to complete my work. In the middle of rapid globalization, I would like to share my passion and visions of living in diverse cultures through my artwork.
