Yuko Kirino – our second artist in our Caregiving Artists series – hails all the way from Japan. I happened across @kirino.y_illustration when browsing Alzheimer’s-related pictures that we could share with our community.
Yuko’s Instagram account is a fun follow, featuring a different illustration each day of the main character in her story – a cat. Hearing the artist’s story behind why she created “The Cat Story” is even more inspirational:
We found out my father had Alzheimer’s during autumn of last year. Daily nursing is serious work – both physically and mentally. I remembered my father liked my drawing, so I started to draw. I hope my family and those around us can take time to look, relax and have a calm moment with my casual drawings.
