About Sato

Born in Gunma Prefecture of Japan, Sato moved to Okinawa after graduating from Meiji University in Tokyo. At age 25, Sato studied in Australia and met Monique Cannon who is the creator of Sato’s unique chalk painting style. Sato became a student of Monique and completed a certification program with MCA (Monique Cannon Association). Two years later in 2011, Sato became a certified teacher of MCA.

Sato is tirelessly polishing her techniques in Okinawa and beyond. She is also teaching the unique colors and style of Monique’s Chalk Art that has inspired her since her journey in Australia.

Her Classes – 講習歴

Sato usually teaches in small groups for children or adult in Naha. Her students come from all over Japan from Okinawa to Hokkaido including members from Chamber of Commerce and Miss Universe in Okinawa. Sato has taught all over the country and is looking for opportunities to expand her classroom to oversea students.


Sato’s Chalk Art – チョークアートとは

Her style is often used to create menu, signs and ads in stylish restaurants and cafes. The chalk she uses is different from conventional chalk. It is engineered for the purpose of easy color blending. In addition to that, the material is extremely sensitive to temperature. Body and room temperature affect the outcome of the artwork, which makes this unique medium an exciting one to work with.
