Bio

Perhaps the most famous woman print artist in Japan, Shinoda works in both printmaking and calligraphy. She utilizes lithography for its proximity to painting, allowing her to brush flowing strokes of ink onto the stone. Her free, fluid style is based in a tradition of loose "grass script" calligraphy and evokes the motion of wind on water.
