I Moved Again!

I moved again but this time within the same building. It is now Studio "202" not "109." Please come and visit my studio full of my art and artistic mess if you are in Miami Beach!

You can view my art (and artistic mess) through the large show window glass even when I am not there.

The building is open everyday 11:00 AM - 11:00 PM

"Kyu #1" Sold at a Silent Auction


"Kyu #1" paper collage on a wood box of 9"x9"x2", varnished with resin, 2006

The first "Kyu" series piece (titled "Kyu #1") was donated to a silent auction at the Florida Immigrant Advocacy Center's Annual Dinner that took place on Feb 13, 2007. "Kyu" means 9 in Japanese. All the Kyu pieces are 9 inces by 9 inches with the depth of 2 inches, thus I named the series "Kyu." As it turned out, people love this size! Typically people like to have multiple pieces (mostly 3 or 4 pieces) together, picking up their favorite colors.

"Fuck" Sold to Michigan Attorneys

My art piece titled "Fuck" found its home. A couple of lawyers in Michigan purchased this precious piece. Originally created during a collage workshop I attended in Washington State in February 2006, this paper collage contains an original page from an English-Japanese dictionary published and printed in 1984. I came from Japan to America in 1992 all alone and struggled to learn English. I would carry this dictionary with me at all times because I did not speak English. I used it so much that I found myself not being able to throw it away, so I decided to use the pages for my art work. I randomly ripped pages off and started making collage pieces. When I was about to finish up this particular piece I noticed that one of the most frequently used English words, "fuck," was on it. A few months ago I pasted the artwork on wood, varnished with resin, and titled it "Fuck."

I am finding out that lawyers love my dictionary collage more than any other people. I am assuming that attorney's work consistis of defining, redefining, manipulating, and analizing words. "Maybe" they had chosen their carriers due to their inclination to words.
