Okamura studied at Alberta College of Art and Design, Calgary, Canada and the School of Visual Arts, New York. His work has been seen in solo exhibitions in New York and Canadian cities and was included in the BP Portrait Award 2001, 2002, 2004-6, 2008 and 2009.

The portrait is of Okamura's friend Aimee, a college student, whose views on current world events Okamura was keen to explore and record. Aimee chose to wear a ‘Think Peace' t-shirt for her portrait which Okamura recognised as a sincere gesture and embellished the pose with white flowers as another symbol of peace.
