Color Woodblock Print

Lynita Shimizu has been creating woodcuts using the Japanese technique of _moku hanga_ since the mid-seventies. Originally from Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, Lynita graduated as a fine arts major from Westminster College in 1974. She followed a year at the Chinese University of Hong Kong with a four-year stay in Japan seeking to concentrate in the study of woodblock printmaking. Lynita worked in Kyoto with the elderly Tomikichiro Tokuriki and in Tokyo with the contemporary printmaker Yoshisuke Funasaka. In Japan Lynita met and married Katsumi Shimizu and they later moved to River Edge, NJ, where they raised their three children. Katsumi and Lynita now live in NE Connecticut (Ashford) and Lynita’s studio overlooks a beaver pond on the edge of the Yale Forest.
