Oil on Canvas
As the daughter of a renowned painter, Sadako grew up in an artistic environment in Japan. Her father sent her to receive private art lessons. Sadako’s true journey as an artist began after the death of her father when she resolved to carry on his legacy of painting.
In addition to her training as a youth, Sadako received her formal training at Gulf Coast Junior College and achieved an Associate of Arts Degree in 1998 and, with an Arts Scholarship, William Carey University, where she achieved a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Paining and Ceramic with High Honor in 2001. Upon her graduation at William Carey, Sadako received the Excellence Senior Award from the Arts Department.
Her interests for subject matter and medium have greatly expanded since her experience with Hurricane Katrina. She humbly feels that art is her life-time study. Sadako works on the several series including Composition with Figure, Ballerina, Gosho, Cow, Cityscape and Abstraction.
She has shown her work at museums and galleries throughout the nation and region. Her works can be seen at The Art House Co-Op, Ocean Springs ; Negrotto’s Gallery, Biloxi ; Frame City, New Orleans
