Yumiko Yamada

 

Born 1938 (Yokohama, Japan), lives and works in Yokohama, Japan.

Yumiko Yamada graduated from an academy for music and she has been teaching piano and also making paintings for a long time. She knew of ink painting eight years ago through her work using other materials such as watercolors and oil paints. She believes the nature of ink helps teach us about the tastefulness of wabi-sabi. Ink, and its connection to the tea ceremony, zen and Haikai, have deeply affected Japanese culture and art.
