Harumi Yukawa started calligraphy as early childhood. She was apprenticed to Sanshu Uemura who was a master of Japanese calligraphy in Japan. 

 After earning traditional calligraphy instructor's licence, she embarked on the journey to broaden her art experience in the United States. She received an associate degree from City College of San Francisco and transferred to the University of California, Berkeley to acquire further education. Taking charcoal drawing classes in the early years gave her a deeper understanding of the composition how to create the space between black and white, which was in the same manner as calligraphy. Later on, color dynamics class led her to an interest in watercolor paintings. She received the bachelor`s degree of Art Practice from UC Berkeley in 2009.
