flora Yuri

painted on a coaster
konnichi-wa, heARTists and heART lovers around the world.

it’s the 8th day of the 9th month, and time to show off a little more of Yuri’s heARTwork.

while we’re still busy in post with our documentary, War Brides of Japan, we’ll make it quick.



besides being an incredible artist, Yuri also had a green thumb. a long-time lover of all varieties of flowers, she loved creating art with that theme as much as she enjoyed growing flora.

material girl

konnichi-wa to heARTists and heART lovers everywhere!

it’s the 8th day of the 8th month and time to share more of Yuri’s amazing heARTwork.

again, we’re in post production on our War Brides of Japan documentary. so, we’ll have to keep this blog post short and sweet.

btw, you can request membership in our Facebook group, Japanese War Brides & Families & Friends, where we discuss our Japanese war bride mothers.

a favorite medium for Yuri to work in was material. how that girl loved to sew!

here, she's dressed as the famous judo sensei Sanshiro Sugata in a kimono she made herself for this particular dance recital.

and here, she shows off a kimono and a football helmut she designed for her grandson when he was  just a toddler.

Yuri's favorite heARTworks

konnichi-wa, heARTists and supporters of Yuri's heARTwork. it’s the 8th day of the 6th month and time for more heARTwork by Yuri.

but wait, we’re still busy editing our War Brides of Japan documentary, so we only have a few images for you; some of Yuri’s favorite things.

here’s a self-portrait of her as a cross-dressing dancer. seriously, she took on the role of a famous judo master in a dance recital, and even made the man’s kimono herself. then, she painted herself from a photo.


Yuri means lily flower, and here are lilies that Yuri grew in her garden.


finally, here’s a plate of her homemade spaghetti with steamed green beans, and garlic toast from her favorite whole wheat bread that she baked from scratch.


and here are all the links to the War Brides of Japan documentary which we're now anticipating will be completed by fall.
