When I was young, I just loved overseas interior magazines, and everything
I saw in those magazine was a total adoration.
Years later when I encounter "Quilting", I was devoted to quilting
from the happiness of finding what I was long looking for.
When I think about it, it might be my destiny to meet a great mentor who
had awakened my sensitivity of coloring.
I had been working on "Traditional quilts" which I adore for
a long time; but also I had some chances to engage in the work
using Japanese fabrics, which made me realize beauty of such fabrics.
And these chances acknowledged me of sensitivitiy towards beauty which
traditional Japanese had.
This acknowledgement made me want to pass on to the people, through me
own waiy of expression, the beauty of Japanese
That led me to the world of "modern", typified by the design
of art deco.
Now I have beginning to pursue the world of "WA" through gentle
Japanese fabrics and new expression of "modern".
My style of creation might change when I encounter a new way of expression,
but I'm quite sure that I won't be able to
break away from this mysterious world of quilting.
