Facilitator, Junko Azukawa
Junko Azukawa grew up in Toyama, Japan at the base of the central Japanese Alps, a region famous for the natural beauty of its landscape. Azukawa started learning Shodo, traditional Japanese calligraphy, at the age of five and has experienced the vast possibilities that Sumie, calligraphy and Japanese ink painting, can express with just simple monotone brush strokes. Since moving to Melbourne in 2005, Azukawa has brought her unique artistic talents and outlook to the Australian art scene. She started teaching Japanese calligraphy and painting with children and adults at numerous schools and organisations and also exhibited at a number of galleries in Australia and Japan.
