About the Artists
Linda J. Beeman is a native of Owosso, Michigan. She studied Art History (theft and forgery) at University of Kansas and has been Artist in Residence at Mt. Fuji, Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park and, this year, at Petrified Forest National Park.. While taking many types of art classes over the years, Linda is primarily a self-taught mokuhanga artist, an art form which she now teaches across the U.S.
Lynita Shimizu, originally from Huntingdon, PA, studied Fine Art at Westminster College and the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Her introduction to Japanese woodblock printmaking began in the Kyoto atelier of traditional master, Tomikichiro Tokuriki in 1974. She later joined a group of printmakers in Tokyo studying under contemporary printmaker, Yoshisuki Funasaka. Today you’ll find Lynita in her Ashford studio overlooking a beaver pond at the edge of the Yale Forest.
