The Arts and Crafts Press

10" x 18.5" Matted

12.5" x 23.5" Framed


In 1996, Yoshiko founded with her husband, Bruce Smith, The Arts & Crafts Press in Berkeley, teaching herself (with the help of wonderful mentors) the craft of letterpress printing. For her limited edition prints, Yoshiko first sketches, and after multiple drawings and water colors, she begins cutting blocks. Sometimes she works with wood blocks, usually cherry, and other times she chooses linoleum. Yoshiko takes the blocks and prints each color separately on a Vandercook printing press, using as many as twenty blocks per print to achieve the desired effect. Yoshiko now resides in a small coastal town of Washington with Bruce and their children.

This print was created from sketches Yoshiko did while visiting The Gamble House in 2007.
