How can you use your time staying home to create more meaning and art?

During this pandemic, I have been able to take an online art class from well-known Japanese Watercolor Artist, Yuko Nagayama.

I have admired her skill as a watercolor artist for a long time. In fact, when I was struggling with cancer in bed, I was watching her watercolor lesson on YouTube. I wanted to take her classes so much, but unfortunately her art classes were so popular that It is hard to enroll. Also, she taught all her classes only in Japan.

However, because of this pandemic, she began teaching a new online class that was available worldwide. This was my dream come true. Now I am able to see her wonderful watercolor technique. It has helped me grow so much.

Thank you so much with Yuko Sensei!

Please check out a painting I made for her class below.

I was born in a suburb of Japan near Tokyo called “Chiba”. I studied art in my childhood in Japan and later moved to the United States to pursue art as a career. Because I enjoyed the work of Georgia O’Keefe, I decided to move to her desert hometown, New Mexico, in 2002. I received my Bachelors degree from the University of New Mexico in 2007.
