In 2011, I visited France for the first time. I saw many beautiful things there. I went on an eight-day tour, and we visited Paris, Loire, Mont Saint-Michel, and other famous and picturesque places. I liked France very much.

I have been painting pictures, using the black ink called sumi, since 1985. This style of monochrome ink painting is commonly known as Chinese brush painting, but in Japan it is called suiboku. I am a rug hooker and also a suiboku painter, as well as a member of one of the boards of the Contemporary Suiboku Painting Association.

I painted Château de Chenonceau and made this rug. It is an honor that Château was chosen for Celebration 26. It took me about a year to complete the rug.
