"As a poet expresses feelings in poetry, I reflect my thoughts in my artworks. Visual art has been an instrument that allows me to communicate with people. I sublimate private emotions, especially complex and suffocating feelings, into something stunning."
Rina Suzuki was born in Taiwan and raised in Japan to a family of artists. She is currently attending a small liberal arts college and is in the process of earning a Degree in Visual & Performing Arts with an emphasis in Studio Art.
"Since I was a kid, my family encouraged me to be involved in designing their art products, and I was self-taught until I started studying art in the United States. My grandfather, who was a photographer/painter, influenced me to focus on water and water lilies. The knowledge I have gained as a college student, especially in psychology, has provided many inspirational ideas for my artworks. In June 2018 two of my paintings were selected for an online art exhibition, “Water,” organized by Colors of Humanity Art Gallery."
