Linda J. Beeman is a multi-award winning artist, instructor and curator who works exclusively in the ancient art of Mokuhanga – Japanese woodblock printmaking.  She was born and raised in Owosso, Michigan and attended the University of Kansas, where she studied Art History (theft and forgery).  She continued at Dundas Valley School of Art in Ontario, Canada where she studied printmaking.

A self-taught mokuhanga artist, Linda was recognized by the Cultural Ministry of Japan and invited to be Artist in Residence at Mt. Fuji in 2012.  She has exhibited widely in the U.S., Great Britain and Japan.   Her work can be found in numerous corporate and private collections.

Linda was a 2019 Artist in Residence at Petrified Forest National Park.  She has also been AiR at Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore and Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park.

Linda is one of very few mokuhanga artists in the world and one of 10 instructors in the United States.  Because of the rarity of mokuhanga instruction outside of Japan, Linda is sought after for workshops at universities, art schools, and privately, across the country including Interlochen Center for the Arts (Michigan), Center for Creative Studies (Detroit), and the Virginia Museum of Fine Art (Richmond).

Linda has traveled extensively in Japan and is the Past President of the Michigan/Shiga Sister State Board.   She is also the founder and director of Art From the Lakes, an artist exchange program between the Sister States of Shiga, Japan and Michigan. www.lindajbeeman.com
