Currently a junior at the University of Michigan, I am pursuing a BFA in Graphic Design/Fashion and a minor in Entrepreneurship. Growing up in New Mexico, I've been exposed to the value of different cultural approaches, and I strive to be open minded towards using new media and techniques in my art. Being Japanese-American, my art is informed in part by my awareness of race dynamics in this country, and by our social and political injustices. My passion is in but not limited to textiles and multimedia art.
