Having experienced Suzu festivals, this artist felt they were a guaranteed opportunity to meet the people you wanted to see. The flow of thoughts and memories connected through these festivals created history. Using old kiriko and string made by tearing and retying old clothes, the artist creates a meeting place filled with rich memories, like a forest teeming with wildlife.

 In 2012, she graduated from Aichi University of the Arts with a major in sculpture. She creates three-dimensional works and installations by digging up recollections and times left in objects and connecting fragments of memories to reconstruct a new form of time.
In 2013, she had an exhibition at TENGAI GALLERY produced by Hisashi TENMYOUYA. Since then, she has had private shows and participated in special exhibitions. In 2018, she collected used clothing and created works for an exhibition there during her stay in NY.
