<Artist Profile>

SATOKO (Artisit name)

Process Artist/Psychologist

I have been a psycho-spiritual therapist in Japan over 25 years. I support many people to be able to live their own life more totality.


 Through this work, I also have gotten inspiration that how to become who I am and how to be alive more in this my life.

 Then, I begin to start creating the art works from 2014.


I have learned Japanese calligraphy for many years. But, I create my style which is drawing freely on the big Washi (Japanese traditional paper) and SUMI (Traditional black ink for Japanese calligraphy) in the nature by using natural stuff, for example, roots, beaches, leaves, sand etc, instead of Japanese calligraphy’s brush.


My drawing process is very simple. At the beginning, I have no idea what to draw. I pick up natural stuff in the forest or the beach just before drawing. I follow my inspiration within the natural environment. It is a very spontaneous and dynamic process. It is a co-creation process with the earth. 


So, I named it "SUMI TAO ART”.


I have been creating the artworks at on the various places in the earth---Yachats,Portland (USA) , Amazon forest (Ecuador), Fukusima,Tokyo (Japan) and so on. Especially, Oregon Coast,Yachats is my home ground for creating the artworks. 



The subject matter, to remember ‘ Sense of Eternity ' and ' Sense of Aliveness' by the art. 


Through the long-term my life experiences and spiritual practices, I feel that beyond this lifetime, each of us are keep going own soul journey. 


But our “this life” is only once.


I hope to inspire that how our this life is precious through my art activity.
