About Me

Hi World!

I'M Yurika,

I was born in China. I trained at some of the most prestigious art schools in China and then I relocated to Japan in 1992. 

I have painted under the names Jiang Lie Qin (signed as JLQ) and Yurika Nakae. I hailed in Japan as a rising star in the art world. 

In 2002, I relocated to Los Angeles, California. My work has been featured in a lot of exhibitions in North America, Europe, and Asia, including seven major individual exhibitions, and has received attention in both print and broadcast media in America and Asia. 

I am a member of several exclusive artist groups in Asia, and my work has received awards, including most recently a prize from the Renten Exhibition in February of 2002. 

My painting “Venice Gondolas No. 3 was included in the Japan Art Annual 2003, published by Bijutsu Nenkansha. 

I also worked extensively in the fashion industry several years ago.

My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.

This picture is taken in 2003 when I had a Solo exhibition at Santa Monica, Bergamot Station Gallery with one of my collectors from San Francisco. 


I am inspired by diversity of life and my travels. 


I use variety of techniques.

I enjoy creating art through my whole life!
