These are my brushes for my work. I always take good care of them after I finish painting.

This is a lemon tree in the front yard of our house in Japan. I was grown up with vegetable and fruit from our garden. The scent of Fragrant Olive. My hometown is surrounded by the sea and by the mountains. It’s all the way across the Pacific Ocean. I miss my home at heart.

When I was little, I used to like watching my mom boiling broccoli. From the top, it looked like The Amazon Rainforest. I imagined colorful parrots, giant lizards, crazy monkeys, insects and interesting shape plants and flowers.... Even now, I still do that.
