S A T S U K I   S H I B U Y A  is a painter, artist and spiritual thinker, living and working in Rancho Palos Verdes, California. Her work is based upon intuition, energy and spirit, exploring the realms of the unknown to bridge the gaps between the traditionally tangible and the unseen. Through watercolors, visualizations of universal metaphysics appear with a focus on themes such as nature, energies and aspects of everyday life. Each piece created embarks us on an unique and personal journey into our own souls in hopes that we emerge not only inspired about peace and harmony, but also with enlightened appreciations for this world in which we all live and share.


ロスアンゼルス生まれの画家、スピリチュアル思想家。

有形、無形との間にある、まだ知られざる領域を探求して表現を試みている。

水彩画を使用し、自然、エネルギー、日々を描く。

絵画と言葉を通し、人間の心に潜む平和、調和、地球への感謝を思い出す誘因であるよう願う。
