ARTIST STATEMENT
As a child of two cultures, Japanese and Anglo American, one of my interests in furniture making is drawing from the design aesthetics of diverse cultures. Most recently I have been involved in designing and making pieces that have a similar spirit as primitive art. I admire the innocence and honesty within this work and hope to speak in a similar voice.
I have an innate need to create three-dimensional objects. It makes me feel that I have accomplished something. Furniture is the perfect medium for me to work with because I enjoy having my work interact with people.

I love to carve wood. The silence, the control, the search for form, the texture, the trace of man's interaction, a record of the creative process-a moment frozen in time.
