Mission

"My mission is to facilitate people to connect with their Divine Essence"

 

My mission is to facilitate connecting people with their true essence in their hearts - Divine Essence - so that they can find their true light and it shines their true paths.  

 

I create a Mandala from a spark in the center.  The spark of light was ignited and created all of us. Before I create a mandala, I meditate.  I see geometric patters of light come through the paper in combination of dots, lines and colors. Mandala symbolizes Unity and Harmony in life. Visually appealing geometric shapes and colors calm the circuitry of the left brain, while activating the creative side the right brain to connect with our true essence - path to the heart.  

 

   Artist Bio 

I am a native of Sapporo, Japan.  After I took my first watercolor class

in Charleston in 2000, my dormant talent has awakened and I have begun to paint

exhibit and study art in earnest.

 

In 2012, I attended the spring trimester of Angel Academy of Art in Florence, Italy. 

That experience provided international exposure and boosted my confidence as a

skillful artist.   

 

I am always explored new ways of creative expression in my art.  After I attended

a Mandala artist class while in Japan in 2015, it showed me totally different way

of create something inspiring.   

 

I have been a seeker of spiritual growth since I have started my art. With my recent Mandala work, I have returned to the time of my childhood love of coloring Mandalas. It gave me freedom in my creative direction and a new path for my artistic talent.
