Fumiko Toda

Fumiko Toda is fascinated with color, texture, textile design, and form. Most of the images and inspiration for her art are drawn from her childhood background. She grew up in the Japanese countryside, near the edge of a pond thriving in bio-diversity. She spent long summer days collecting all manner of insects, leaves and stones to escape isolation.


Through the making of art, she engages this disconnection: from the community of humankind and from the natural world. She works to create different layers of acrylic paint, ink, graphite and oil-pastel. Her works are whimsical; they are abstract and figurative.


After attending Art and Design University in Kyoto, Toda moved to New York City, in 2001. She has been strongly influenced by the urban experience; how metropolitan living tends toward disconnection and results in an existence bereft of intimacy.


Her work has been exhibited extensively and is in important collections throughout the U.S. and abroad.
