Born in Japan, I have always worked in visual forms, as an illustrator, painter, and make-up artist. She moved to London in the mid-1970s she began working extensively as a stylist, choosing costumes for artists appearing in photo- and video-shoots. It is from this intensive experience in the world of fashion and music during the 1970s and early 1980s that My photography derives. This is the provenance of her elegant, beautiful images. A strength of my work is an ability to find majesty in the mundane.
