What I want to pass on to you in my works are.....
Transition of seasons and beauty of flowing time.
Pleasure of small discoveries in details of arts.
The gracefulness in Japanese tradition.

The feature of my illustrations is that in small figures which compose large forms you recognize first,there exist even smaller variations seen if you see them closely.

Only when the forms strong enough to be gazed at and the beauty of details, such as small figures, harmonize well with each other, I account my work to be completed.
