Eiko Yoshimoto, Sept 2017

posted in: Upcoming Workshops | 0

2017, Sept 23 – 30th
Eiko Yoshimoto was born in Okayama shortly before the Second World War. She studied English literature and drama at the Notre Dame Sacred Heart School and after her studies, worked with the Toho film company and world-famous director, Kurosawa. She gave up her film career for hairdressing which eventually brought her to the UK. Her career as an artist, however, was not launched until after the birth of her son. When he was six, she began to illustrate a children’s book for him using pastels and has not stopped creating art since. Her style is strongly influenced by Monet, Degas and Turner.
Method of Working
“The way I work is to launch straight in with colour, without any underpainting or other preparation that might interfere with my spontaneity and energy.”
