Calligraphy Artist / Performer K2inovation Co. Ltd. CEO / SINSHO Association Representative Director
Born in 1982 in Kyoto, Japan. Currently living in Tokyo.
Experienced a dramatic family separation at a young age which caused her to live a very introverted child and adulthood. In 2002, she began working as a sales rep. for a Kimono fabric and design store. Wanting to show pure gratitude towards the customers, she came up with the idea of writing “thank-you letters” by hand using a brush pen. This simple action touched the hearts of many of her customers, and she quickly became the top sales rep in 6 months. Thereafter, in order to fully understand her own feelings and to express them outwards, she innovated her original calligraphy style called “SINSHO”, which means “Calligraphy of Heart”. She started her own company in 2008 and provided her artwork to more than 20,000 customers world-wide in the past 13 years. With the hope of helping others express their feelings and live their own way, she also started providing “SINSHO” Seminars.
In 2013, she established “SINSHO Association” to expand the SINSHO method nationwide as a self-expression tool, focusing on training other instructors online. Afterwards, together with Ryuichiro Ise, established an online business school that focuses on “Learning important things in your life that wasn’t be taught at school.” She passed on the knowledge on how to gain love and financial freedom to more than 1,500 people through these classes, paving the way of new possibilities for many women. In 2018, she expanded her activities overseas in earnest and devotion to the production of calligraphy artwork using her own body as a canvas. Through her performance, she received praises from the media such as “her appearance of writing her works is novel and beautiful,” “perfect technique and beauty full of passion,” and “unique and exciting view of the world” and have attracted a great deal of attention and offers from all over the world.
Her honest and unadorned personality attracts wide range of fans, as well as collaboration requests from artists and musicians from all over the globe. Currently, she is devoted in creating a world full of people who can connect with others and society as “who they are” and make the most of each other’s “characteristics” and she continues to strive both domestically and internationally to convey that message.
