Artist Statement

What I interest most is the everyday life that ordinary people engage in.  I discover and pick up a piece of system, scene, and bond; I put it into a word, and make it known as my work.

I design my word on the postcard and print it out.  I may be called “Visual Poetry.”

The word could be a communication tool among friends, family members, the world itself, and your inner self.  Not only words but pictures and Mail Art create the world of communication through words.
