Healing People’s Mind with Art
PAVONE (Published by KP Creations Co.,Ltd.) - Japanese luxury lifestyle magazine "PAVONE" interviewed President Nashi in their summer/fall 2017 issue featuring "High Quality Hawaii Lifestyle."
Masako Nashimoto-Luttrell founded Nashimoto & Associates, an ad, marketing & PR firm in Hawaii, and celebrated its 35th anniversary this year. She is well-known for her numerous achievements as a successful female entrepreneur, winning many awards including the Governor's award for exemplary service to the retail industry in Hawaii. Starting her successful career in Tokyo, she ceaselessly worked even when she moved to Guam and Hawaii through life-events such as marriage and childbirths.
While she has kept the lead in the tough industry, she used to battle with uncertainties of the business environment a few months ahead. What saved her from the state of mind was painting. “When I start painting, hours just pass by, and I believe this is spiritual and meditative healing for me. My art work has received many awards, and I now donate some of my pieces to hospitals and others. Art is leading me to a better direction; My network as an artist has broadened, and people can be healed by my art. There is nothing more rewarding than this.” The successful female entrepreneur gently smiled.
