Bio & Contact



Born in Japan. Moved to New York City in 1995. Graduated from Hunter College (CUNY) with a BA degree in Studio Art and Psychology in 2003. Studied photography under the legendary Roy DeCarava.

Artistic nude is central in my photography and takes many directions. I use nudity to reflect my personal perception of sexuality, to expose my subject’s emotion, and to express my view of cultural, social, or political issues. Whatever the intent of my work might be, I always keep in my mind to portray the beauty of human form with a hint of eroticism.
