Thank you.

It's been crazy busy with my baby, and I have been away from my pens and brushes for awhile. In the meantime though, some people purchased my artwork on Society6! I am so excited about it, and I would like to thank those people for making my day:-) 

It's extremely difficult to do anything personal now, but I manage to find a way to keep my creativity going with my iphone and instagram.   You can purchase my instagram photo at

Dreaming in Lotus

I made this with the lotus I drew before.  I've been meaning to play around with the image, and it took me forever to actually start it.  Also I started putting my work on where you can purchase prints and other products of my art.

Canyon Under Stars

Thinking about up there these days.   Tokyo is too bright to see stars.

Sakura petal shower

I could catch the last minute of this year's cherry blossom spectacular!  It was very very precious to be able to spend such beautiful day with my loving family.

Color of hearts

I had some days when my son was extra sleepy. That's when I grab my brushes and have some fun experimenting with colors.

It's kind of funny thing to say, but I remembered that I like heart shape. I like the curves.  I used to draw many hearts when I was a kid. So I draw many of them and thought about my childhood.

This heart shaped bubble wrap started all this. 

Goood timing. My son is up and mumbling!!

missing ocean

I've been missing Pacific Ocean since last summer. Now that I live on the other end of it, I don't really have an easy access to the coast.  Hopefully I'll be able to visit beach this summer.

fun summer is coming

color tree

This is one of my embroidery works I brought with me from California.  I didn't like this linen fabric, so I didn't even frame it.  It seems like my son likes it. He wanted to chew on it so much.  

I am happy to see my son finally plays with the cubes I made for him.  They are for him to chew on, barf on, or whatever he wants to do.  It'll probably be awhile for me to be able to take such long hours to work on embroidery again, but I'd love to make something for him again. Maybe books..??

in love

Lesson from Bill Evans

These are extracted from the movie "The Universal Mind of Bill Evans - Creative Process and Self-Teaching". Maybe my yesterday's calling for Bill Evans was to encounter his ideas on the creative process.  It is very interesting that you do not have to be a musician to understand what he talks about.  Thanks again, Bill Evans:-)

Started Friday with Bill Evans

This last several days had been wet, cold and dark.
We finally have sunshine today!
Opened up the windows, let fresh air in, and I felt like listening to Bill Evans.
It'll be a nice weekend.

Oh, my baby.

I try to draw as much as possible while my 5 month-old son takes a nap.  This one is for my son, Ren.  It means 'lotus' in Japanese.  Yes, my life is all about him right now.  Ren Ren Ren Ren!:-)
I am thinking about adding more to it digitally later. Hmm..what can I do?

It was nice to learn about this lovely gentleman in the morning of St. Valentine's Day.
I wish he was in my town.  Yes, life is beautiful and should be appreciated every single day!:-)
Happy Valentine's Day!

Hola todos:-)

How are you feeling at this moment?
I feel so nice.
My beautiful boy is sleeping next to me.

He smells nice. He sounds nice.

Another beautiful day.
Just like the day he decided to be my son.
