Message

Life is short, but art continues to live on.
I continue to ask myself, if I could connect through art the present, including tomorrow, and pass it on to generations to come in the future, what is it that I want to leave as a legacy?
If I could brighten the future just a little bit with my art, it would bring me great joy.
I always begin my creations by saying to myself, "this is the beginning of the future."
I want to share my art with as many people as possible.
