My latest series "Puku Puku Bubbles" encourages viewers to embrace each moment and every day in order to live with passion and peace. As a Japanese daughter of Ancient Greek and Phoenicia origins, I grew up amongst two different culturesMediterranean and Japanese. This series is inspired by their regional depictions of the Phoenician goddess Tanit and Japanese Dogu (meaning earthen figurines). I admire these simplistic figures for their whimsical ambiance. I believe dynamism is the key to harmony and embraced this concept in my paintings by utilizing both water-based Sumi ink and oil-based pastels on on canvas.

In Papageno/ The Magic Flute, Papageno seeks true love with his friend, Tamino. After a long journey and a lot of mistakes, Papageno finally found his true love with Papagena—who was helping to guide him through his journey while pretending to be an old lady. The painting is about the joy of finding true love!
