Atsuko Yoshimura grew up in Japan and immigrated to Canada in 1996. She studied ceramics extensively in Japan and Canada. Upon arrival in Vancouver, she en¬rolled in the Fine Arts program at Langara College. Then she trans¬ferred to Emily Carr University of Art and Design and received a BFA in 2006. On top of her stud¬ies, she worked as a glaze techni¬cian at a pottery studio, and also produced ceramic work for galler¬ies and craft shows around Van¬couver. In 2008, she took a hiatus from pottery making and focused on raising her children. Once her second son entered elementary school in 2014, she made a fresh start with a new body of work, porcelain series. In addition to making work out of her studio in Vancouver, she currently works as a pottery studio manager at West End Community Centre in Vancouver BC.
