Yoko Tahara is an interdisciplinary artist who was born and raised in Ja-pan. She has been working on media such as installation, drawing and printmaking ( monotype, linoleum cut and etching). She creates imagina-tive, abstract compositions based on images from nature and the Japa-nese culture. She currently focuses on photo etchings which she uses to create delicate details and various background textures. The scabiosa pods gives her motivation to work on her new body of work.
She also commits time to community-based art practice for environmen-tal issues, especially concerning the oceans and fresh water related mat-ters.
