I'm exploring color and light to create spatial atmosphere, designing textiles and working in the related field. I expect that phenomena that textile makes have a feature to excite, fascinate and heal people.

I uses printing and dyeing textile as a main method to develop design ideas. As my major concern is the textile design in build space, I have been made curtains, for example, and pattern design on fabric. To be inspired, I often do research of the use of color and material of architecture and surrounding environment.

I am currently working as a assistant professor in the field of textile design at the faculty of Design in the Okayama Prefectural University in Japan, where I have class of printing and dyeing textiles besides tutoring. I'm thinking of what is the fun and sustainable way to teach crafts and design for next generation.
