Born in China of Japanese parents, Yoko Kondo Konopik studied in Tokyo, Japan and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. She went on to further pursue fine arts in Paris, Mexico City, Tokyo, and Washington, DC and has displayed work in galleries in cities the world over, among them, Cairo, Egypt; Jakarta, Indonesia; and our country's own Alexandria, Virginia. Yoko settled in Las Vegas in 1995 and has been exhibiting in solo and group shows regularly ever since.
She enjoys the creative process, adding that it brings her "comfort and happiness" if she can "make pieces with beautiful colors in lyrical lines and forms." Her work is currently on loan to the West Sahara Library and she is a juried member of the Henderson Art Association.
