About the Instructor | Dorothy Yuki (she/her)

Dorothy studied to be something other than an artist. She began as a fashion designer immediately after college but soon she became a partner of a manufacturing company, In Good Company, in 1965. She designed and manufactured kitchen soft goods and linens. The company was sold in 1976 and she became a Consultant to the Fashion Industry by request of the then President, Leonard Joseph. As a production and design consultant, she worked with many identity and music production companies, as well as new startups.
Now in her 80s and living in San Francisco, she is engaged in many volunteer activities, Ruth’s Table, Artseed, SCRAP-SF, San Francisco Center for the Book, and FabMo. She also mentored at Bay High School in their Senior Program. She was past President of Friends of Calligraphy and has been a Master Educator for the Macy’s Fashion Incubator San Francisco.
She still has the time to do ‘art’ and has worked on projects for MMOCA, Flax Art and Design, Kalligraphia, Ruth’s Table, FabMo and SCRAP-SF. She is a recipient of Honorable Mentions for her artwork at the Marin Museum of Contemporary Art Altered Book Show 2014 and 2015. She is also busy helping her two daughters care for her four grandchildren. To find out more about Dorothy's work, visit her blog
