Yuko Ike was born in Japan, and spent her early days in Tokyo. She has spent most of her adult life in the US and currently resides in Connecticut. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and American Literature from Aoyama Gakuin University (Tokyo, Japan).

For as long as she can remember, visual art, particularly drawing and painting, has been her passion. Naturally, she has a strong affinity for Japanese aesthetics, most notably the influence of “wabi-sabi”. “Wabi-sabi” is a Japanese view of aesthetic centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection. She calls it “A form of art in asymmetry, minimalism and modesty.”
