Born in Nagoya, Japan in 1924, Teruko Yokoi creates paintings that are rooted in the tradition of Japanese art. She loved painting even as a child, and at an early age was given private tuition by the renowned teacher M. Suzuki near Nagoya, where she was initiated into traditional Japanese art but quickly developed a curiosity for contemporary art in Europe. After the war, she moved to Tokyo in 1949 to continue her studies in the academic course of Takanori Kinoshita. With the intense wish to learn more about modern art, she left Tokyo and moved to San Francisco in 1953.
