S A T S U K I  S H I B U Y A
 

S A T S U K I   S H I B U Y A  is an energy painter and spiritual thinker, living and working in Los Angeles, California. Her work is based on intuition, energy, and spirit, exploring the realms of the unknown and bridging the gap between the tangible and the unseen. Through watercolor, visualizations of universal metaphysics appear with a focus on themes such as nature, energy, and aspects of everyday life. Each piece takes us on a unique and personal journey into our own soul in hopes that we emerge — not only inspired to cultivate peace and harmony — but also with an enlightened appreciation for this world we all share.


ロサンゼルス生まれのエネルギー画家、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。
