Kitsune is the Japanese word for fox. Foxes are a common subject of Japanese folklore. Stories depict them as intelligent beings and as possessing magical abilities that increase with their age and wisdom. Foremost among these is the ability to assume human form. While some folktales speak of kitsune employing this ability to trick others — as foxes in folklore often do — others portray them as faithful guardians, friends, lovers, and wives. – wikipedia
I am an artist who works with assemblage – used discarded materials and organic matter to create portraits, political statements, family history, personal transformation. I also do performance and photography. Check out my website www.judyshintani.com to see my art gallery, and find out about my workshops, and upcoming shows.
