About Me

I was born in Jacksonville, NC and am of Japanese and American descent (whatever that is!  ;)

My mother, Noriko Kunishige was very proficient in charcoals.  Her father sang classical Japanese, her uncle carved traditional Kabuki and Noh masks...well you get the is in my genes.

I had gone to North Carolina Central University for Fine Art and studied Japanese Language at UNC Chapel Hill.

My work has been exhibited at the Durham Arts Council, Cup A Joe in Chapel Hill, Black Station Gallery and self produced art exhibitions. 

I produced community art exhibitions from 1993-2002, under the name of Triangle Concepts, with then business partner and fellow artist, Ray Tolan and the support of many local businesses.

After a 7 1/2 year hiatus, I have found time to return to one of the things I enjoy most, my art.

I am married to Jerry Marks, I can't tell you what he calls me affectionately.  I have 2 dogs, Llibby (pronounced "Yibby"), Harley and 1 cat named Allie.  The oldest of 5, I have 3 brothers and 1 sister, all of whom are artists or artisans and have many nieces and nephews that I adore!

Last, but not least, I am very fortunate to have the great friends that I have.  You all know who you are!
