I see the world around me with art filter glasses. I'm an artist and creator. I appreciate all forms of art; classic Impressionist to modern abstract, contemporary architecture to industrial products, and unique handmade crafts to cool high-tech innovative products!
I am originally from Japan and moved to the US to study art, then stayed in the U.S. Having said that, I am rather adventurous in my life than conservative or timid, and intuitive and spontaneous than too cautious. Although I am culturally mix of Japanese and American, I am not submissive and meek. I am strongly influenced by Californian liberal mind. I respect all sorts of love, but I choose to be a monogamist. I am passionate about things that I love or believe:) Though I am a bit shy at first, once I see a person as someone I can trust, I am loyal to the person for a long time and help him/her.
I believe that challenging is a key to bring myself at a higher level or better position in my life. Life can be sometimes hard and have to face many sorrow. ( and I know many joy too) So I am into tapping my soul and trying to practice mindfulness...:) My friends say that I am very self-confident and independent, but I believe that we all need to care and connect to each other. It's wonderful to help each other and share the feeling:-) I learned so much from my life experience and I still am... I feel grateful that what I have and who I am.
I enjoy activities that inspired my art, especially painting in the nature, hiking, cooking, visiting museums, and traveling to beautiful landscapes. I also believe that creating art will make the world a better place, and would love to contribute to that.
I love nature. I used to be a big hiker and camper. Though I love living in SF and it's my second hometown, someday I would love to live in the environment closer to the nature where I can hear the sound of the ocean or the wind go through the land. I will design my fun, unique and modern house with a original tree house!
Traveling is my passion like anyone:) Some of my dream trips would include visiting art festivals in the world or museums to see my favorite painter's artwork, meeting with a shaman in India and going on a painting trip around the world! Life is too short and I want to enjoy and do stuff that is more meaningful!
I love to practice Yoga. I enjoy organizing Art charity event once a year. This is my practice of "Art makes the world better act". Being compassionate to both others and myself is important for me.
Among my many faces, besides being an artist, I am a mother of 11 years old daughter who is smart, sweet and fun. She is my good half and little my mini-me:) I enjoy spending time with her, and she constantly teaches me to be a better person!
And Painter. Oil paintings for myself but it's kinda serious about it. Studio and plein-air painting.
Work: Professional Artist and teacher. I worked on many Hollywood major animated movies as a designer and painter for a long time, for 2D, 3D and stop motion animation. I published few children's books in my past. Lately working for a local game company as an Art director. Also I enjoy teaching at the Art university in SF once a week.
As much as I love the idea of being on the ocean, I get sea sick... No sailing for me:-(
I enjoy other live-action films with great story telling. I love to watch interesting documentary on any subject. Real life has amazing story than any fiction often.
I deeply appreciate the artist point of view of documentary and his/her passion.
I don't watch much TV.
Lately I saw "her". It was quite intriguing.
I LOVE to go galleries/museums and Art opening! and see stage shows, ballet, dance, musical, theater or comedy shows! they are my creative resources!
Love food. Cooking is my another passion:) Lots of healthy Asian/ ethnic or Euro mix/ creative meals along with raw foods and macrobiotic cooking! Eating is Joy! Love local fresh veges. Enjoy a host dinner party and discover new/ good food at restaurants along with a glass of winer or beer sometimes :)
Music! I love good acoustic, fun and funky music to Tchaikovsky violin concerto. My Pandora is from The Knife to Massive attach to Spanish guitar!
Books: I am an avid Audible listener! Listen from deep psychology or spiritual books to many non fiction and some fiction books. Few books per month.
I have driven across the country on my motorcycle (500cc) around US continent including Mexico for 1.5 months. Used to go rock climbing a lot and backpacking around the world. Went Alaska 4 times...Slept on the snow.
Yes, I have been to Burning-man. But I don't call myself burnner.
Do you have something passionate about?
Self-confident, kind, easy going, fun and spontaneous?
You think we can share our own unique interests and expertise. And you can stand my accent!
You enjoy art or doing art or you are creative in some way. If you are geeky enough to understand animation is plus:)
I appreciate if you are a good communicator, sensitive, cultural and down to earth.
I am looking for someone who are into a family, established financially, to be able to connect, sincere and like to share the life together. Importantly inspire each other. And someone who appreciate that I am a mother of a beautiful daughter. You love kids? I have a half custody, so I have free time as well.
I believe that any good long term relationship comes from a great friendship:) I seek a lifelong lover, partner and romantic relationship, if it meant to be with you:) I don't play game. I purely want to practice a meaningful love and trust together side by side.
***if you still have a big baggage and not ready for relationship, or looking for a short term fun or if you are into polyamorous, taking hard drug or depression medication, needy person, have an anger issue, racist, mean, hard core republican, watching sports all the time, you like to kill animals, don't care your health and body, looking for casual sex etc, please don't contact me. You are definitely not a right person for me. And I don't do constant messages FIY. ( only minimum )
I like this saying...
"Sing like no one is listening, love like you've never been hurt, dance like nobody is watching. and live like it's heaven on earth."
At last, thank you for reading my profile:) I know, I am not the best writer!
