With complete focus, Chiyo imbues each brushstroke of the Japanese characters or
“kanji” with meaning, power and rhythm. Chiyo’s goal is to make connections with people from all over the world through her art. Though her primary audience is unfamiliar with Japanese
characters, she is known for using color, texture and line to successfully convey emotions and concepts through her art so others can intuitively sense its meaning. Chiyo uses acrylics,
watercolor, mixed media collage and 3D techniques to create her own unique style.
Chiyo is also known for bringing calligraphy “off the page and onto the stage,” with her live
calligraphy demonstrations — often performed in conjunction with other Japanese art forms. She has performed with Taiko drummers, “Noh” dancers and Koto players. These dynamic performances result
in lasting artworks that reflect and expand on the work of the other performers.
