- The creator behind sumi works

Calligraphy artist and designer based in Copenhagen via NY and Tokyo.

She creates, performs, and teaches contemporary calligraphy by blending Japanese Shodo calligraphy and abstract expressionism with a minimalist aesthetic. Using letters, words, and basic forms as motifs, she translates them into her visual language with traditional and modern methods in her work.

While living in NY as a designer, she refined her artistic style in video art and photography. Then in Copenhagen, she returned to her artistic root, Japanese Shodo calligraphy, which she had been practicing since age 6. This led her to reassimilate Japanese traditional arts through calligraphy with her new insight. Now she presents and reinvents Shodo calligraphy in different forms such as drawings, interior design, and live performing art as a new form of art.

Her works have been presented in museums, art galleries, and cultural institutions in Europe, US and Japan.
