Although the annual physical tour for 2020 is canceled due to Covid, some artists are accepting visitors. Check artist profiles for details.
Sadly, I won’t be opening my doors this year. I’ll miss all of you more than you can imagine. Next year, however, there will be twice as many new woodcuts on the walls. I’ll keep posting new prints on this site, so please stay tuned and stay safe.
Lynita Shimizu's introduction to Japanese woodblock printmaking began in the Kyoto atelier of traditional master, Tomikichiro Tokuriki. She later joined a group of printmakers in Tokyo studying under contemporary printmaker, Yoshisuke Funasaka, with whom she remains in contact.
Today you'll find Lynita in her studio overlooking a beaver pond at the edge of Yale Forest, making prints filled with life and spirit.
