My medium is traditional Japanese embroidery, which is created using only the finest quality silk thread embroidered onto fine quality kimono silk. I am a graduate authorised tutor of the Japanese Embroidery Center, Atlanta (the only centre for JE outside Japan), but will always consider myself to be a student of 'nuido' - the way of embroidery, I aim to continue to develop and improve my skills and knowledge as long as I am able to embroider.
The hands are the exit of the spirit - Master Iwao Saito
All my pieces are created by hand following the way of NUIDO (the way of embroidery) and its three aspects: the acquisition of technical skills and knowledge, the development of artistic sensitivity and awareness, and understanding the spiritual aspects of shishu.
