I am a half Japanese artist, raised between Tokyo and London. I spend ten years living nomadically, during which I lived and worked in Melbourne, the Daintree rainforest, Puglia, Goa, Madrid, and the Minho valley, roaming the globe experiencing different ways of living whilst working on myself and my art.

My inspiration comes from time and timelessness, the spaces we inhabit, both physical and energetic, and from nature,

our home and cradle. I have curious hands that also like to play with carpentry, festival/event decor, embroidery, making natural pigments and many other types of craft/ making.

When not creating I can be found tending to the land and food forest garden, furthering my knowledge of land design and agroforestry,  learning new ways to work with my hands, or just sitting in the sun listening to the birds.

For commissions, licensing, or any inquiries, please drop me a note at ky.shapiro@gmail.com and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.
