Growing up in Japan, Yasue Sakaoka was taught a number of traditional arts as part of her cultural education. As important to Sakaoka as her work as an artist is, she believes communicating with people, sharing her art with both old and young, is equally so. It was on a return trip to Japan in the late 1970s that Sakaoka saw a display in a department store in downtown Tokyo that drew her back to the traditional art of origami.
A resident of the Columbus, Ohio area, Sakaoka has taught through the Ohio Arts Council's Traditional Arts Apprenticeship. In addition to her recognition and involvement in the arts throughout Ohio, Sakaoka has exhibited and taught in and around the United States.
