  Biography Statement
 
Born in Nara, Japan.
He received BFA from University of Hawaii. While at U.H, his painting won a purchase award
and it became a permanent collection at Honolulu Academy of Arts.
Presently, he works as designer of graphics, exhibitions, and monuments.
In the field of graphic design, he won the first place in the logo mark contest for Japan Toy
Association, being awarded one million yen.
For the past seven year, he is involved with haiku poems. He collaborates with haiku poets
from world over, and made more than 1000 haiga (haiku painiting).
He is an advisor to World Haiku Association, and is the judge of Monthly Haiga Contest of
WHA.
When I started painting at college, I used to take photographs and worked from them. I seem to
like the photographic accuracy. At times when I got tired of meticulously doing realistic
paintings, I was tempted to go into abstract.
My instructors told me not to, reminding me that I was a born realistic painter.
The last painting I did at college, which became a permanent collection at a museum in
Honolulu, was a hard-edged photographic painting.
When I got exposed to computer graphics, I liked it right off. I have been using Adobe Illustrator
most of the time, making graphics and illustrations using mouse (it has become like my hand
by now).
My association with haiku poets influenced me to do artistic illustrations. By artistic, I mean the
pictures with poetic content. I am not much concerned about the newness of appearance,
which is often considered a valuable thing in digital art works. I rather put in some substantial
content in my digital works so that the viewer can extract many layers of meanings from them.
