About me

Retired from 20 years in the corporate healthcare industry, I am pursuing my passion (and second career) in the visual arts. A founding member of the Women's Artist Association of Tokyo and an Organizer for the Tokyo American Club's Women's Group Showcase; I have been studying Oil, Drawing, Photography, and Japanese Ink Wash since August 2012 in Tokyo. I believe Art brings peace to the soul and always strive for the "Joy Spark" in my work.

(With) Peace. (In) Art. (To the) SouL.

  3. Peacock on Monet's Pond

    26 September 2016

    This piece is part of my first professional exhibition. One of my inspirations is Monet and how he used broken color to create a composition. I love the use of metallics and Indian Textiles. The Peacock is the national bird of India - where I was born.

  4. My friends here in Tokyo make these beautiful Temari Balls - it is a craft that has evolved into an Art. With every stitch purposeful in its creation of a larger design.

  5. Fuji-San

    6 November 2016

    I had so much fun working on this piece. It is Acrylic, with variegated gold leaf, mica and other acrylic grounds. It is 51cm x 41cm. I love using gold, silver, variegated or any type of metal leaf and/or metallic paints.
