In March 2011, the Great East Japan Earthquake, the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant and the separation from my family left me physically and mentally ill. After years of suffering and being closed off from society, I met art therapy, which healed me and I started to make paintings to express my current emotional landscape. These paintings are the voice of my heart. Though the collaborations with the people who have seen these paintings, the closed wall between society and me has gradually started to open up and through painting I have been able to reconnect with society.
