Chie Utsumi was born and raised in Fukuoka Japan. Since moving to the United States, she began to take drawing, painting, and photography classes at San Francisco City College, San Francisco Art Institute and other classes where she was self-motivated to do figurative works and metaphoric images. She studied botanical illustration at the Mary L. Harden School of Botanical Illustration. She received her Master Artist in Botanical Illustration Certificate. Continuing her illustration work with other Master Artists for educational exhibits, she enjoys her focused artwork illustrating the details of organic forms from live plant specimens. Chie feels that creating a sustained and purposeful connection with plants awakens in her a strong sense of mystery and beauty revealed in the life cycle of the natural world.
