We live in a world plagued by forgetfulness. We forget our passions, our curiosities, our small glimpses of truth that made us come alive; we forget who we are.

I believe that art is that which, if only for a moment, uncovers truths that we allow to be buried. Art is Connection.

My name is Stephen Takashima, and I have a passion for art and connection. I would love to help you tell your story.



Vision. Story.

“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” -Maya Angelou

Here you will find a small collection of stories. Meet real people, meet ideas, meet passion and heartache and redemption and us. I hope that you meet these stories and in them find connection.

Then think about what your story might be, how you might be connected in all of this. What is your story? We'd love to help you tell it.

(...or at least a small part of it.)
