My name is Kaori. I am a printmaker based in Cairns.
The themes behind my artworks portray my experience as a migrant and traveller. I then use my imagination to develop symbols and metaphors to express the feelings of identity from Japan to Australia. Interestingly migratory birds repeat the cycle of migration, innately year in year out. They appear to do this with resilience and strength at the mercy of their environment. This inspires my desire to find strength in this pattern of life.
