Yumiko

I am a Japanese Calligrapher. I teach calligraphy. I have classes for Kids, Adults and Tourists. I can teach calligraphy in English also. I obtained a master certificate in 1997. I have been independent since my relocation to the United States and started teaching. I joined a group show of contemporary Japanese calligraphy at NYC in 2012. I worked for the stage set design in NYC in 2013. Back in Tokyo since 2015, I own "Studio Kotonoha" and continue to teach calligraphy and study about the relation between calligraphy (書道:shodo) and mind(心:kokoro).
