Haruyo Morita

Haruyo Morita was born in Kita-Katsushika County, Saitama Prefecture Japan. 

From an early age her artistic talents were evident, and she came under the tutelage of Master Husuki. He introduced her to the classic narratives and pictorial compositions that have made Japanese images so popular both in Japan and throughout the world. 

After serving her mandatory apprenticeships, Haruyo worked as a kimono painter and designer until 1972, at which point she turned to her current medium. Her work is best described as a contemporary representation of the traditional Ukiyo-e, and ranges from the Heian to Edo and Meiji periods. She has held exhibitions of her work in London, Honolulu, Los Angeles, New York, Saudi Arabia, and Japan. 

Haruyo Morita relocated to London in 1977 and later moved to the New South Wales Coast of Korora, in Australia, where the light and climate are perfect for her work.
