What I Can Do

Art Workshop

I organize an art cooking workshop using Shiratama, the Japanese traditional sweets made from rice. Through the workshop, I want to create an enjoyable place where people get together, have fun and bring out their creativity.


I am passionate about taking photographs spotlighting happiness and beauty in our daily life. Capturing the beauty of people's smile, conversation and relaxing moment, I want to show people how we embrace our lovely life.


I write articles for several online magazines. My article mainly covers environmental & social issues, social startups and sustainable lifestyle. I am enthusiastic about giving readers a new perspective through my articles.

Masuda colours

I like to visit Japanese local places. I visited Masuda in Shimane in April, 2021. The cover photo is a Miyagajima island, which looks like Mont Saint-Michel in Normandy, France. He stands in front of Grand Toit, the Shimane Arts Center. It uses Sekishu tiles […]

Cake, cake and cake

I went to a Christmas party at high school in Aljestrel. Students brought a lot of cakes, snacks and drinks for the party. It was the last day before the Christmas holidays. Full of excitement and joy.

Simple but enough

Each element is simple, but still, has a real presence. Each colour is vivid, but still, harmonizes with each other. Each object is independent, but still, supports each other.

Common sense in a local area

I started an artist in residence in a small town called Messejana, Portugal. One thing that I was surprised to discover is that cafes and restaurants here are reservation only. It’s unbelievable if you come from a big city, isn’t it? But it makes sense […]

Artist in Residence in Portugal to start

I came from Finland to Portugal. My next artist in residence programme is to begin. What are there over the sea?

A Little Bit About Me

I’m Nagisa, an artist and creator from Japan. I’d love to make the world a little bit better place through my artworks.

I was born and raised in Nagoya, Japan. When I was a little girl, I was very curious about nature and people. My love for the sea and foreign countries made me think about environmental and social issues in the world. At university, I studied International Development in Tokyo, Japan and Brighton, England, thinking about what I can do to make a peaceful world.
My first career began as an interpreter/translator and a coordinator between the Japanese Government and foreign Governments at Ministry of Defense in Japan.
While working there, I couldn’t help but express what I see and feel through photos, writing, and all around creative types. After leaving the job, I studied photography and drawing in Denmark to regain my inspiration. The experience drove me into a creative field.
Now through my writing, photographies, and artworks, I am eager to let people notice the sustainable life is beautiful and enjoyable.
