Born in Tokyo. After graduating from Nihon University College of Art with a degree in film studies, worked as a reporter for architecture-related magazines before joining a publishing company specializing in film books. Through editing film-related books, I gained experience in news gathering and photography, and handled a large volume of still photos from films. After the birth of my second child, I left the company and has since worked as a freelance editor. In March 2011, after the Great East Japan Earthquake, I began to think more about photography, and in April 2012, I began to study photography in earnest at the Phat Photo Photography School. Since then, I have completed Workshop 2B, Marc Proust's "Rising Sun" workshop, and others. After several years of blanks, in April 2018, I transferred to the Photography Course of the Department of Aesthetics at Kyoto University of Art and Design's Correspondence Course, graduating in March 2021. Currently, I am creating works focusing about situation of contemporary women.
