A California transplant from Oklahoma, Wife, Mom, Step-mom, and Grandmother. The blend of my Oklahoma roots and ever present Japanese influences, give me enormous amounts of inspiration in the fiber arts. I love teaching, creating, and learning. As I like to say, "You're never too old to use crayon."
I have DJ'ed, done weekly booking, and promoted at clubs as well as radio stations for over 5 years with interests in freeform but often soul and minimal wave.
Since 1999, my focus from visual art since childhood shifted more to experimental music, and I have been doing that regularly for almost ten years.
I am still exploring painting and visual art, but musically I have been broadening my palette; making experimental electronic music in the realms of noise, drone, industrial, and collaborating with people along the lines of punk, hip hop, electro cabaret, or circus music.
I have written for several zines, including my own for 3 years or so, since 1999, and I am currently doing biographical or music-oriented articles instead of short stories or fictional narratives as of late.
Born in Japan and having spent quite some time in London, I am now based in Amsterdam. I studied BA Interdisciplinary Studies and BA Fine Art, taught art, managed community art projects, got involved in some commercial works, and worked as Head of Design and Approvals at an international entertainment company. Now I spend my time being inspired, looking for fun projects, and making things that make my world go around.
Lessons. No pets. Slow.
Now I like life slow.

From that moment I have painted around 400 paintings and this year I was invited to the Florence Biennial, to Mary Capan's gallery in LA, Street Art festival Zagreb, etc. I had several group exhibitions and 4 solo exhibitions in Croatia (where I live). I won prizes in photo magazines and now I write a column in one Croatian photo magazine (FotoMag).
