Although I work independently, I have also worked with an art group called “Kusatsu-Machinaka-art Lab.” since 2018. There are 5 artists in this group: an illustrator, a potter, two painters and myself, textile artist. We’re all mothers who live in Kusatsu City, Shiga. Our motto is “Let’s create opportunities to enjoy art in Kusatsu!” From a mother’s point of view, we would like not only adults but also children to enjoy and feel familiar with art. We mainly work and exhibit in Kustsu City.
