I’ve been attracted to fine art for most of my life after a life-changing experience I had in high school at an exhibition. That was a turning point for me. I learned to appreciate art and realized how wonderful it is in addition to the immense potential that it holds to move people.
This led to my ambition to become employed at a museum. During my university years I pursued this dream, studying art and art history from all around the world while zeroing in on Japanese paintings as my major focus of study. I eventually achieved my goal and was employed at a museum, coming in contact and handling precious works of art. I have since retired but my passion for Japanese art lives on. It is for this reason that I would like to introduce others the wonderful world of Japanese art and begin helping others to appreciate such paintings.
