REIKO 

花々の小さなパーツから感じられる生命の躍動、その静かな内的世界に心が触れた時の深い歓びの瞬間をとどめておきたい、その世界とずっとつながっている感覚と共にいられるように。そうした気持ちから、イラストレーションに生花を施す手法を用いて2010年より作品制作を始める。2013年フラワーアーティストとして活動をスタート。2014年初個展開催。2016年より、自分のやってみたいこと、感じていることを思いきり表現できる創造の場をつくりたいという思いのもと都内小学校でアートプログラムを行う活動をスタート。現在、アートワークショップCurifpa!を主宰し、アートエデュケーター&ワークショップディレクターとしても活躍している。

She was also working as a freelancer giving psychological counseling and therapy. In the following years, she went back to university and pursued a degree in philosophy. In the process of accomplishing this degree, She engaged in a variety of side disciplines through courses like religion, art , archaeology, and biology where she started experiencing thoughts that made her wonder about the inner meaning of life and of the respect and appreciation of nature. Through these experiences, her passion was born. Her thoughts did not remain to be just mere experiences but became a world worth creating, thus became Okielgreen. These passions mainfested through her glass artwork,flower arranging and interior knowledge. After came her Mixed Media illustration works with glass, fresh flowers and other media in 2010.
