Sachiko Furui was born in Osaka, Japan. After
ten years of establishing her art, she settled
in Boston in 1985. Her first woodblock print
was made in the first year of her American
life, which was Old North Church in Boston.
Since then she started designing Eight Views
of New England and Six Views of DE and PA.
Whenever she visits, her eyes catch some
beautiful landscapes all over the country.
Her life project is to finish A Hundred Views of America by woodblock print, just like Hiroshige Ando of Edo period in Japan (1797-1858). In her works, there are some influences from her traditional skill of dyeing art (KATAZOME). Enjoy a Japanese feeling by a Japanese artist who lives in Boston in the 21th century.
