Her motif is seashell. Because of her father’s job, she had moved a lot inside Japan while she’s growing up. However, she could found the same seashells no matter where she goes. Now she became a mother and goes to the beach with her child, those seashells reminds her own childhood.

Her forms are soft, organic, and quiet. However, you can see how much she cares about the details as she curves out seashell pattern with a needle.
