about:

She has traveled extensively and has lived in Tokyo, New York, San Francisco, and currently resides in Los Angeles.

Yoko graduated John Jay College of Criminal Justice, City University of New York. Studied at Art Students League of New York, Laguna College of Art and Design, and San Francisco Art Institute.

Her work has been exhibited in various studios and galleries around the country including New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and the Nevada Northern Railroad Depot Museum in Ely Nevada.



"Noh" mask:


"Noh" mask, the most important element of Japan's traditional performing arts "Noh", continually attracts Yoko as a motif for her paintings. Slight adjustments in the positions of the mask and light can expose the viewer to full tapestry of human emotions and feelings such as - love, hate, sadness, jealousy, anger, depression and much more.

By painting the wood sculpted "Noh" mask on canvas, Yoko hopes to be able to transform the canvas into "Noh" theatre and portray life events and fantasies.
