The spatiality of the two-dimensional works, like a kind of illusion or distortion, makes us rediscover our senses as a gap with reality, It also expands the imagination to multidimensional landscapes and sensations that cannot be felt in the real world landscape.

She believes that imagination for what has not yet been seen will lead to an ever-changing perspective and relationship with the world around us.

In 2015, she received the Encouragement Prize at the “2014 Kyoto University of Art and Design Graduation and Completion Works Exhibition”. In 2019, she received the UNKNOWN ASIA Art Exchange Osaka 2019 Sponsor DPH Award and the Benny au Award.
