I was born and grew up in Japan.

I studied painting at the Victorian College of Art in Melbourne, Australia in my thirties, but did little painting until I came to the UK in 2002.

I was then taught by Tony Rothon, Ilaria Del Turco, Alex Fowler and many wonderful teachers.

Thanks to them, I now paint seriously again.
