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

 After earning traditional calligraphy instructor's license, she embarked on a 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 composition, how to create the space between black and white, which was the same manner as calligraphy. Later, color dynamics class led her to an interest interested in watercolor paintings.

Even amongst her experienced mentors, she thrived and showed her spirit to grow as an artist and as a human being. She received a bachelor`s degree of art practice from UC Berkeley. 

Harumi now lives in Japan, loves to practice traditional tea ceremony, and currently teaches a drawing class as her life`s work.
