Goto showed her interest in art at early age and soon found herself in an art prep school aspiring to be a stage designer for theater arts.
During the school years she became more engrossed in its amusement of oil painting and since then she has determined to be a painter. Around the same time Goto
encountered the works of abstract expressionists such as Aso Saburo, one of the leading figures in Japanese abstract art movement, and the New York School of the 50's which later had a great
influence on herpaintingstyle.
After graduating Musashino Art University Junior College of Art and Design Goto was away from any creative work as she felt like she was lost over the concept
of “art school” and “art” itself. Yet the death of her close friend brought her back to the art creation reassuring that art is indispensable to her, and Goto started over her career as an artist
at age of 31.
