one day ∀KIKO was provoked by something invisible into showing her pictures on the street. This was the start of ∀KIKO's artist life. She has been influenced by the native people of the world. She is particularly respectful of and influenced by the " AINU " people who are the former inhabitants of Hokkaido where she has her roots. The " AINU " way of life, as considering all their surroundings to be " God " along with feelings of respect and gratitude, links to ∀KIKO 's life style just as it is.

People regard her pictures as mirrors, seeing themselves reflected within them. They can travel freely and deeply into themselves. Flowing with the energy from nature into her body and soul, she is the painter who uses points and lines to draw the microcosm and macrocosm that is each and every being.

∀KIKO has her studio near the forest at the foot of Mt.Takao in Tokyo. She regards her art-work as her life-work and spends fortunate days with the support of beloved people and her loving dogs.
