Yuko Ishii

"I approach both my life and my art committed to the mystical belief that I am entering a totally different dimension of reality, and I expand my intuition to understand the hidden meanings of being and of life."

Yuko Ishii's home in the mountains provides her with much inspiration for her photography and mixed media artwork. Her largest body of artwork documents the diversity of expressions of birds in nature to capture the beauty and sensibility she encounters in her everyday life. She enjoys communing with birds in an effort to understand their habits and habitat to support bird conservation.

Ishii creates digital photographs, which she manipulates on the computer. She then prints the images with archival pigment inks on printmaking paper. She highlights each print with colored pencils to give her work a more painterly quality. Each print is affixed onto a deep wood panel. Lastly, she coats each print on panel with wax to give the image a translucent quality.

She is a self-taught artist from Japan who moved to Washington state in 2001.
