Ever since I was a small child, I liked two things: to paint and to flip through the pages of illustrated books of insects, plants, and animals. Until I learned that scholars took painters with them on their research trips around the world centuries ago, I never thought to connect the two. I immediately thought, How wonderful it would be if I could spend my days traveling around the world drawing plants and insects. ” Instead of going out on adventures and finding exciting new species, I found beauty in ordinary vegetables and trees on the street. A common butterfly in my backyard became much more valuable than a rare species.

Nature pleases not only my eyes, but it inspires me in various ways. I wonder, I get curious, and I am amazed. If I see something interesting, my imagination flies like a butterfly. At the same time, it makes me worry. We are facing many, many environmental problems. I have come to understand that I know very little about these issues. It is sad to imagine that a common butterfly might not fly in our backyards in future generations. These thoughts and worries are woven into my artworks, but my main motivation in creating art is to share the beauty of nature and celebrate the simple joy of experiencing it.
