Ayako Araki was born in 1913 in North-East China. While pursuing her study at Shoin Women's College she joined the art club and discovered her love for art.

After marriage her husband encouraged her to enter Kyoto Art Institute and she became a member of the Dokuritsu Artist's Association in 1967. She spends hours aping objects such as an old mud wall, birds, insects and the roots of old trees. For her they symbolize the stream of vibrant life.

MIgrating birds was painted during her first visit to Palestine when she saw the birds migrating and remembered the faithfulness of God's promise in Jeremiah. It is in the collection of the Asian Christian Art Association, Kyoto.
