Suezan Aikins and Johnye Strickland ~ haiga


Suezan Aikins Suezan Aikins works with watercolor, mixed media on gold leaf, and, with her husband master printer Sam Rogers, Japanese woodblock technique. She grew up surrounded by art, including many Japanese woodblock prints, which inspired her love for the technique and all things Japanese. She and Sam studied at the famous Yoshida woodblock studio in Tokyo in '84- '85, and they have returned often for solo exhibitions and further explorations. Before she went to Japan, Suezan began to study and write haiku and later renga, which eventually were published in journals in North America and Japan. Prospect Press has made 8 limited edition hand made chapbooks, and her poems have been in various anthologies and renga books.
