Nobu moved with her family to Darien, Connecticut, in 2003, where she established her art business and her unique Modern Folk Art style. Since then, Nobu has painted scenes of the New England countryside and the towns of Darien and New Canaan in Connecticut, and many of her paintings are in private and public collections. She has designed the cover of the Darien Parks & Recreation Department brochure since 2008, and many local nonprofits have used her works to raise money. She has established herself as one of the most recognizable and beloved artists in Darien.
Nobu has been commissioned by many to paint house portraits, and in addition, she has launched a line of dog portraits, inspired by her labradoodle, Princess Fiona.
