Born 1957. Sarah Brayer is an American artist who works in both Japan and the United States. She is internationally known for her poured washi paperworks, aquatint and woodblock prints. Arriving in Kyoto in 1980, Brayer studied etching with Yoshiko Fukuda and Japanese woodblock printing with Tōshi Yoshida (1911-1996) the son of influential woodblock artist Hiroshi Yoshida (1876-1950).  In 2013 Japan's Ministry of Culture awarded Sarah its Bunkacho Chokan Hyosho ("Commissioner of Culture Award") for dissemination of Japanese culture abroad through her creations in Echizen washi. Sarah’s works are in the collections of the British Museum, the Smithsonian's Sackler Gallery, and the American Embassy in Tokyo and the Zimmerli Art Museum, among others. Kathy has collaborated with Sarah as a master printer since 1982, both in New York and in Japan.
