She will demonstrate woodblock printmaking following brief announcements at 7:30 pm, emphasizing the Japanese method of multiple color and/or print editions.
As a student of Japanese artist Toshi Yoshida, her personal technique combines Japanese and European methods, and she creates woodblock prints on various surfaces, including her own handmade paper, canvas, cloth, and lambskin suede.
