"I am heavily influenced by primitive cultures and archeological heritages.

I got a strong impact in small villages in Mexico where I traveled 40 years ago.

They create and make what they need from natural materials around them.
Now I live and am making large scale sculptures that embrace sustainability and the
environment through the use of recycled and reclaimed materials.

My sculpture's connection to nature is strongly materialized through the shapes and ideas in my
work while referencing Japanese architectural influence and western design.
I have three different cultural backgrounds, Japan , Mexico and the United States.
My sculptures become an amalgamation of diverse influence that harmonize through
the methodical process of woodworking."
