Sayoko uses a traditional Japanese woodblock print technique called Mokuhanga. Her art focuses mainly around human bodies, plants and anything with “life”. She hopes to create positive energy that is healing or gives the viewer courage to move forward with her art. Sayoko also wishes to convey the strength and gracefulness of the tree through her use of Mokuhanga.
Sayoko joined Made with Japan because she liked the concept of introducing Japanese culture through art. She was also moved by founder, Yuuki’s passion for the project and felt that she too would love to join the effort!
MESSAGE FROM SAYOKO:
I’m happy to be a member of Made with Japan. I hope I can convey the beauty of Mokuhanga to the world. Please feel hot energy from my art works.
