And there’s a little more to the story…
Yuri was born in a countryside near Tokyo where she played in the woods and learned the wisdom from ecosystem, local herbs and Japanese healing foods. From a young age, her passion was to seek the universal truth and understand the wisdom of nature.
She decided to study English and came to Canada at high school. During that years, she has learned to use art as a tool to be able to express herself beyond words. Her artwork has been exhibited in both Japan and Canada.
Yuri’s personal healing journey took her to many countries and communities, always with the warm support of the people and nature around her. Her deep respect of Mother Nature made her come to the understanding that, with love, we can accept and heal ourselves.
