Momoko Usami received a BFA and an MFA from Kyoto City University of Art in Kyoto, Japan, and moved to the United States in January 2008. A resident artist at Lillstreet Art Center in Chicago in 2009-2010, Momoko went on to establish her personal studio in the countryside near Kansas City, Missouri, where she started Art Farm in 2014, hosting small art classes for the community. Momoko draws inspiration from many things, including Japanese painting from the Edo period, dreams, and daily encounters on the street. Her unique, playful, and often interactive ceramic works have been shown in the United States, Canada, and Japan.
