Born in Tokyo and studied photography at London College Communications, University of the Arts London.
Upon returning to Tokyo after the Great Eastern Earthquake in 2011, Moe self taught book binding skills and started a career as a visual
artist making numerous personal projects into hand bound art books. Her primary medium is photography, which is mixed with archival images and illustrations in order to tell narratives in the books and installations. She engages in visual expression on the subject of memories and landscapes that transform along the passage of time, changes in environment, development, disability and relationships within the community.
Her latest artist book Sokohi has received worldwide recognition, also exhibited worldwide in Tokyo, Kyoto, Singapore, Australia, Northern Ireland and France.
