As most artist, I bring a lot of my history and person into my art. My past has been as a successful video game designer and producer. Game design is basically a process of creating a world in which the game player creates their own story. I take the same approach with my art, by creating a world for the audience to explore, I draw the viewer into creating their own story with my art.
In a like way, my person is also a powerful influence in my art. I am a transgendered individual. Simply put, I am an individual who lives and enjoys life both as a woman and a man. As such, this unique approach to life allows me to draw from both masculine and feminine energies as I create my work. In addition, due to being partly raised in Japan, my work also draws strongly from the oriental aesthetic.
