The area is known for its unique wet climate and a mystical history. This area also features UNESCO World Heritage registered sacred sites and pilgrimage routes. While hiking some of these ancient trails during her visit to Japan in June 2011, Yuri was inspired to create a series of misty forest scenes. The beauty and mystery of her home region has been a strong influence on Ozaki's work. After fo

ur years of exploring the southeast, Yuri moved to Huntsville, AL - where she still resides with her husband. Since coming to Huntsville, she has been studying and painting much of the local scenery. Her paintings of downtown Huntsville have been very popular and these works - along with others - have earned her recognition and awards in the area.

I hope everyone is having a good start of 2024. I went backpacking on New Year’s Eve to start my new year in the woods. Currently I am busy preparing for my upcoming classes at the Huntsville Museum of Art. I am teaching watercolor as well as drawing this season.

I’m going to do a free portrait drawing demonstration on Wednesday May 3rd 1p.m. It’s probably about an hour long. The space is tight, so I can only accept three people. I might offer it in the evening(6-7) if there is enough interest. Please email me if you are interested. [email protected]

Hello!
I am pleased to announce that my studio partner Stacie Thomas and I are having a joint exhibition at Tennessee Valley Museum of Art beginning this Saturday March 18th. Stacie and I are very different in many ways. She paints in oil while I use water soluble media. While my paintings are very realistic and some people call them photorealistic, Stacie’s paintings represent her own vision; some might call them impressionistic. While I paint almost mechanically, Stacie goes through many ponderings and often discards unfinished or finished paintings which sometimes makes me cry. We appreciate our differences and we do share our love for hiking.
At this moment, we do not know if there is a reception or not. The exhibition closes on Sunday April 30th.

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
Reflecting on my 2022, there were both positive and negative events. I hope to practice this quote as much as possible.
Wishing you a very happy and prosperous new year!

Despite the gloomy weather, I had a nice day at Monte Sano Art Festival today. This painting of Monte Sano in fog went to a new home. It was appropriate for the day. The weather forecast for tomorrow is not looking great, so I will take a minimum number of paintings.

A little sneak peek of what I will have at Monte Sano this weekend. (Sorry about the poor quality of the photos.) I make these small (5”x7”) abstract paintings when I take breaks from realistic paintings. Abstraction is actually pretty difficult for me. Three of them are larger. (Around 11”x14”-12”x18”)

I realized that the Monte Sano Art Festival is next weekend! It looks like the weather forecast isn’t promising but at l...

I realized that the Monte Sano Art Festival is next weekend! It looks like the weather forecast isn’t promising but at least it is going to be cool-ish. Well, I hope to see you there! (This tree painting is sold. There are more tree paintings on my website. https://www.yuriozaki.com/ )

I would like to paint a very large painting of Downtown Huntsville looked from a high view point. If you know/have an access to a high place with awesome views, please let me know. If you have a drone to take photo and would not mind helping me, that would be great. The image is of a painting by Antonio Lopez Garcia. I am looking for the atmosphere similar to this.

I am honored! My painting ”Stacie 5” received a Patron Award at Watercolor Society of Alabama 81st National Exhibition!
