I have always been very creative and talented with my hands. While a teenager in Japan I designed and decorated nails as a hobby. Possessing an inherent talent I decided to pursue a career in nail art design and graduated from nail academy in Japan.
After graduation I worked in many major nail salons throughout Tokyo. Several years later I became interested with starting anew in New York City. A city where I could apply the techniques I learned in Tokyo and continue advancing my knowledge.
In 2010 I moved to New York for new and exciting challenges. I worked in Manhattan nail salon's where I learned the subtle differences between Tokyo and New York City. I enjoy using all the techniques I learned through my career thus far and apply them during editorial shoots.
