I have been influenced by art all my life. My grandparents were artists and my mother still is. I grew up with the beauties that art has to offer and I have learned to appreciate this very much. As a teenager we moved to Japan for a few years and I have come to appreciate the culture and beauty of this country. My stage name, Sakito Nii, dates from this time. Some years later I taught myself certain techniques of digital art and I still use and refine them today. I love art and I live for art.
