Toni Yuly has been an early bird her whole life and loves to start the day in her studio listening to other early birds sing outside her window. She lives in a small house by the water in Bremerton, Washington, a short ferry boat ride from Seattle, where she was born. 

Toni fell in love with Eastern sensibilities during a year spent in Sendai, Japan when she was just 17 years old. She graduated from the University of Washington with a BFA in painting where she studied with the great American painter Jacob Lawrence. Now, after many years as a librarian in the King County Library System, Toni dedicates herself to designing, painting and writing full time.

Toni loves exploring different media for her art.  Her recent favorite is torn tissue paper.  She has a book coming out featuring this style in Spring of 2017.  In the mean time you can follow her "Torn Tissue Tuesdays” on her Facebook page every Tuesday...HERE!
