Monarch butterflies symbolize hope, change and future.

Even after the artist moved with her family to Japan to live and work in her small studio in Kamakura, Japan, she still often think of the colorful monarchs of Southern California. 

Today Yoshiko makes prints, using only water-based ink and baren (a burnishing tool used to transfer the carved image that was inked and then pressed onto the paper). The "kozo" mulberry paper is handmade in Echizen which offers amazing durability and elegant soft sheen on the surface due to the long supple fibers of kozo.
