Comment
当時、私たちは国際版画展に頻繁に出品しており。それらの図録を通してお互いの仕事を知っていた。初の出会いにもかかわらず彼は私の家族の為に子供服、食器などの生活の為の品々を運んできてくれた。実り多かった一年間の研修を 手助けしてくれたのも彼であった。

We got to know each other’s work through the illustrated books at the International Prints Exhibitions, where we both frequently exhibited back then. When we finally met in person, he brought my family things like children’s clothes and dishes although we had not met before; his kindness and hospitality is a big part of my precious memory of the training year.
