Masami Koshikawa immigrated from Japan and currently lives in Orlando Florida. Her work deals with the struggle of having a multicultural background and feelings of social displacement.

Through the utilization of her mother’s origami in various mediums such as painting, mixed media, sculpture, video performance, and installations, Masami has achieved a unique form of collaboration between her and her mother.

Masami Koshikawa’s recent work, “Butterfly Woman” is a metaphor for her transformation as an artist, mother, and Japanese who has integrated to Western culture.
