Make youself happy.
“Bring back who you really are and find yourself. Be yourself and live life. happily and to the fullest.”


Portland, Oregon USA-based Artist, SORA was born in Usuki Oita, Japan. Her love for Shodo began when she started taking lessons at 6-years-old. He passion for Shodo blossomed under Master Sekko Daigo (Oregon) and most recently, Master Futo Suzuki’s (Japan) curriculum. SORA masterfully blends Shodo art skills with her life experiences which include time as a TV reporter, flight attendant, nanny, Amazon driver (during the pandemic), wife, mother and teacher.  SORA’s art provides a window into her soul.

SORA has an amazing ability to capture energy from the people, sights and sounds that surround her. She feels this energy and uses her body and paintbrush to capture the moment. Every piece of Sora’s art is unique because it is born out of the distinctive energy and feeling of the moment it is created. Through her performance, she demonstrates the limitless possibilities of expression.

Sora feels by releasing the light in every one of us, we will be able to build a more beautiful, diverse, and peaceful world together. Sora is known for bringing a sense of calm and peace through her live performance.
