Yuko Okudaira is a Japanese artist based in Los Angeles. She embarked on her artistic journey from the eclectic world of fashion design, where she honed her skills as a fashion designer and stylist. However, her creative evolution led her to discover the transformative realms of stone carving and the contemplative art of repetitive drawing.
The rhythmic and seemingly mundane motions of carving and drawing serve as Yuko's sanctuary, a means to soothe her soul, and a portal to a profound spiritual dimension. Through these practices, she liberates herself from the constraints of routine and linear thinking, unlocking a space where creativity transcends the surface of the ordinary.
