By her own admission, Yuko Shimizu – ‘illustrator, educator, and not so prolific at this moment fine artist – has been drawing ever since she could hold a crayon, but took a long time to actually become a professional artist’. She now works out of Shy Studio in midtown Manhattan, where she is ‘secretly dreaming of getting a studio-parrot one day (or a dog, or a polar bear)’. [see also Marcos Chin]
