Textile dyeing artist Yoko Shimura follows in the footsteps of her mother, Fukumi Shimura, a Living National Treasure celebrated for her senshoku (plant and vegetable derived dyeing). An educator as well as artist, when Yoko opened her first studio in 1989, she made it a space where others could learn about religion, art, education and culture through textiles. In 2013, Yoko and Fukumi also co-founded Ars Shimura, an art school in Kyoto, where Yoko currently teaches with her two other sons, Shoji and Hiroshi.
