Artist Statement: "Crazy Cat"

My choice of colors and patterns are a reflection of my prayers to bring harmony to a diverse world. My past beliefs were influenced by my Buddhist upbringing. Cats are a sign of good luck in my Japanese culture.. After the World War II bombing of my country I felt a deep desire to forgive, understand and somehow bring unity to a world divided. A patched-up image of my Crazy Cat with unrelated colors and patterns, representing nations at odds, all coming
together to form a whole, became my subject matter. After moving to the United States and embracing my new home and the culture, I decided to incorporate Cajun themes with my peace cat. The simple but festive spirit of South Louisiana people added a flavor of fun excitement to my art thereby creating CRAZY CAT.
