Tadaima

"Tadaima" in Japanese means "I'm back home".

Art used to be just a hobby, and my dolls had always been my muse. I made a lot of art with them which were only intended for my eyes only. At some point, I decided I was too old to have dolls in my possession, so I sent all my dolls back to my hometown faraway.

As I started making more art, I missed my dolls a lot so I asked my mom to ship them back to me. She carefully wrapped them in layers of magazine pages, and this particular piece is made from a photo of one of my dolls as I tore apart the wrappings to finally see her again. She is back home to me, and we will make a lot of fun artworks together :)
