It is a curious path that took me from the
ancient, traditional Art and Design studied in Japan to various
businesses in the wide-open Western culture of America.
By Japanese standards, my parents were very liberal. They allowed me to attend art school and study for two years beyond my bachelor’s degree. But they assumed that my art would not go beyond marriage and something to embellish life as a hobby. That was not what I envisioned for my future.
