About the Artist
“My recent work starts with landscape and architecture. I generally extract the essential
representational elements sometimes superimposing an image of a related memory from another place. Thus the data of experience is transformed into more personalized imagery. The Japanese woodblock print medium (mokuhanga) offers a highly compatible marriage of varied applications of water colours to the woodblock surface which is then printed on dampened paper with a handheld baren. I’m deeply obliged to the quiet beauty and strength of the Japanese handmade papers that I print with that knit the works into a substantial whole.”

Elizabeth Forrest is a graduate of The Ontario College of Art and carried out graduate level research in Japanese woodblock print in Kyoto, Japan where she lived, worked and exhibited for eleven years. She has exhibited nationally and internationally, and her work cab be found in Canadian institutional and corporate collections. She teaches a number of mokuhanga workshops every year including at Open Studio..
