Your Artistic Background/Mission
The mix of my Japanese father and my Oregon born and raised-on-a-farm mother made an incongruent world where a beautiful Kannon (goddess of mercy) shared the same space as a polyester afghan blanket. Living with that mix makes me love that same odd mix in chinoiserie (the European art/design made in a Chinese style). That wrongness is right to me.
