This is what Yoriko said about her work (from the announcement):
I feel like I am caught in the middle of my life because I wanted to become an artist in Japan but instead gave up my dream in exchange for my obligation (earning money). After I came to Canada to study English I realized just how important it is for me to become an artist so that I can be more comfortable with who I am. It is ironic because even though my English is not perfect; I am now more comfortable pursuing my dream in Canada rather than Japan.
