In partnership with Big Medium and Sightlines, PrintAustin invited woodblock printmaker Daryl Howard to join Jeanne Claire van Ryzin, Editor in Chief and Executive Director of Sightlines for a conversation as part of Big Medium’s weekly Coffee Chats. Howard spoke of her time in Tokyo apprenticing under master printmaker Hodaka Yoshida, how her practice has changed due to social distancing during Covid-19, and the way she has embraced technology in recent years in order to continue creating prints.
