I am an artist to create the MojiBa®︎ (Moji Base art®︎).

There have been always animals surrounding me, since I was born and raised in Gifu

where full of nature overflows.

Dogs, the family members had been easing and loving me all the time.
 

My major was art and learned the basic of it in high-school and college

while I was studying abroad in the USA.
Animals quite often appeared in my art works unconsciously.

I’d drawn my lovely dogs living apart for one of my projects by using their names only.


That’s the beginning of drawing by letters, such I named Moji Base art (MojiBa).

(Moji means ‘letters’ in Japanese.)

I’ve started getting orders from people who saw my Moji Base art and realized that

I'm happy when creating artworks for people who love animals or their pets.

After time, my children were born and I’ve been experiencing impressions and feelings

which I’ve never experienced every day.

Under the circumstances, I’ve started creating arts for lovely children and their parents.

The names are the gifts carrying tons of parents’ love and thoughts,

so my baby posters always include names written in Japanese.

 

I’ve lived in many places, and Ishigaki & remote islands especially impressed me.
I was truly attracted by the beauty of coexistence of nature and animals.

I’ve re-recognized that we are living by renting Earth,

and we really have to face to the environmental issues for future children and the Earth.

 


In addition, I feel grief in various problems that overflow in the world such as

animal abandonment or their inferior environment,  refugee issue, the poverty and so on……

 


My prior goal is to make many people happy through my art by Moji Base art,

but beyond that point, I want to create arts to message the issues of the world

to make all the people, and living things including nature happy.
