Oh Yoko. We love Yoko Tanaka's quiet, gentle paintings. Originally from Japan, Yoko moved to California several years ago to complete her degree at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. Her paintings have been exhibited around the country, and for those of us with limited art budgets she now offers signed prints for $20 to $85. Yoko's paintings capture fleeting moments that might otherwise go unnoticed. She also paints day-dreamy figures that seem to coalesce out of a wandering imagination. To see her original paintings in person, stop by Ann Nathan Gallery in River North. To view the entire collection online, visit her Website here.
