do I begin? Art is nature and creating art
is a very natural act.
As a child I was exposed to Fine Art and Natural
History Museums. My father was a photographer
for the Navy and my mother spent a good deal
of her young adulthood working in oils. I
grew to appreciate many forms of beauty, but
art in nature seemed to capture my interest
right away. I was also a very athletic child
so I found an interest in the beauty of movement
through ice skating and dance.
It wasn't until my first few years in college
that I found my niche in airbrush art. At
that point I realized that this was the vehicle
I could use to express my ideas and artistic
creativity. I experimented with many other
mediums but the combination of airbrush, watercolors,
and colored pencil seemed to become my voice.
Today I continue to look for beauty through
the exploration of nature and my Japanese
cultural heritage. I currently work for a
company that designs and builds Natural History
Museum exhibits. My personal art portfolio
provided me the opportunity to work for this
company. I am very fortunate to have a career
that allows me to use my artistic talents.
At the same time I continue to create my own
personal art. Creating is a very natural act
and I am just another part of nature.
