She studied under one of the great masters of Japanese art for several years. She continued to study watercolor after moving to the US in 1993.

She appreciates the power of the sun and the shadows which makes for a three dimensional effect where delicate colors lay on top of each other.

She is a juried member of Watercolor West. One of her floral paintings appears in “Splash 9-Watercolor Secrets” by North Light Books.
