She studied visual-media and video-art at the College of Art, Nihon University in Tokyo and she became a member of Spread Video-art Project in 1997.
She had created her career in many media fields such as TV productions, teaching at institutions, planning educational projects, curating screening programs, working for museums and international video & film festivals and presented her videos at festivals and exhibitions as an artist.
