Biograhy

I have been strongly influenced by Japanese painting, especially in the use of space.
I believe that I have acquired a sense of making the most of space.
The background becomes a simple blank space with a unique matiere that stimulates the imagination.
The background became a simple blank space with a unique matiere, and the style became one of drawing only the current motifs.
In this simple style of expression, the technique of realism of the motifs stands out.
In this simple style of expression, the realism of the motifs stands out, and the vividness of the animals is more strongly conveyed.
The creatures I draw as motifs are from zoos, aquariums, safari parks, and wild animals.
The animals that I have drawn as motifs are those that I have actually seen and met with my own eyes.
