Artist's Statement

When I was a child, I used to wear clothing that my grandmother made. She was an expert hand embroiderer, and the clothes she made were beautiful. She mixed many colors. Sometimes the results were a little clumsy, but it didn't matter. I loved her work. In her way, she was a great artist. Her ability to express things influenced me because she used materials that were essential and easily found. As a result, I try to express my feelings in my work in a way that blends into our lives. I want my artwork to be Linus's blanket in "PEANUTS". Linus always carries his favorite blanket with him, and it makes him feel at home wherever he goes even though the blanket was not so special for other people, it was treasured by Linus. Whatever I make, it is all hand made, and I want to show the warmth this gives so that perhaps someday one of my works will mean the same thing to someone that Linus's blanket meant to him. www.sachikabeya.com
