Hello, I’m Mao.


A multimedia artist and Reiki practitioner

Currently, I’m living out my wild dreams in the mountains of Japan, but my biggest artistic footprints are in the Bay Area.

I’ve worked on narrative and documentary short films as Producer, Production Designer, Editor, Script Supervisor and Camera Assistant.

I also work as a freelance illustrator, often creating images with messages of love for oneself, culture and the planet. Illustration is one of the ways I channel my intentions of healing and positivity.

Combining film, photography and my passion as a Japanese folk dancer, my current project “Shirasagi Project” explores the connection of dance, cultural roots and agriculture.

Visuals & Media

2. Contract me for your project. I’ve worked with independent media makers, small businesses and non-profit organizations who send positive messages into the world. I especially love offering my artistry to amplify messages of love, cultural pride, environmentalism, family, healing and social reflection. Check out my portfolio to see if my work is a good fit for your project. Currently my visual & media services are focused on illustration and video editing.

3. Feature my work. My work has been part of group shows and exhibits. If you see any pieces here that might fit your event, send me an email at MaoArtistry@gmail.com, telling me a bit about what you have in mind. I love sending out my creative babies to keep expanding the conversation!
