Welcome to Harukauniverse.

I’m Haruka Aoki (she / they), an artist and poet-illustrator currently living between NYC and Lisbon, Portugal.

My happy place is in nature, subtle moments, and the metaphysical realm, and you’ll see this reflected in my work, which have appeared in publications including The New York Times, The Washington Post, and The Los Angeles Times.

I’ll be using this platform to share updates on my journey as an artist.

Come join in on the fun! 🐌 🌱
