Tsukushi was born in southern Japan. Growing up on the Pacific coast,
she observed the power of the ocean in every season. The undulating
effects visible in her work reflect the natural forces of wind, waves,
storms and calms.
The paper collage technique she uses allows her to recreate the
movement of nature, providing a sense of texture as well.

Tsukushi lived in New York for several years and her work is now marked
by the influence of two very different, but very strong cultures.
Welcome to Tsukushi's world and enjoy!

Graduated from Saga Art College, Kyoto
