Yumiko Yanone's exposure to Art first came when she followed her father to the riverbed, his favorite place to paint. Ever since, Yumiko feels Art has always been a part of her.
Yumiko's favorite moments are when she is immersed in the process of painting. With concentration at its greatest, she finds it very easy to lose herself, almost forgetting to breathe.
Yumiko loves meeting new people through her work. This serendipity is another aspect of art she cherishes.
