Abstract

I wanted to be a stewardess until age four, and then I wanted to be an artist. Born in Japan, I moved to the United States with my family, first to the West Coast, then the East Coast, finally settling in the Midwest. I lived in fifteen states, all suburban areas, until I left home. Contact with nature was limited. Our only family pet was a guppy in 1970. My undergraduate degree is in design. At twenty-three, I quit my job as a designer for Time/Life Incorporated at Rockefeller Center in New York City. Bidding farewell to high heels and the office with a red leather couch on the thirty-third floor, I began to teach myself to paint. I had two undergraduate painting classes behind me and all the museums in New York at my reach. I fit into that group called alternative artists, which is to say I did not follow the art school path in a traditional manner. These days, rural land and its inhabitants are of great importance to me. Recent work is small in scale, tempera on masonite, and it depicts more than our own species. The figure, be it human or animal, is
