Shuko is an artist. Welcome to the online scrapbook of an artist who lives in Yonago, Japan, after a lifetime in the USA and Europe. She references near and far on this site: "I live locally and think globally. I practice being in the present moment, but I also look at the past and to the future." ❀ Creative output involves an endless stream of behind-the-scenes activities, which include but are not limited to: experiencing, observing, listening, reading, reacting, enthusing, critiquing, collecting, expressing, engaging, meditating, taking care, and practicing. You are witnessing the stream.
