Fragaria x ananassa, Watercolor by Noriko Fujii
A graduate of Kyoto City University of Arts, Noriko earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Art specializing in Ceramics. After working as an industrial designer until 1991, she studied Ceramics at Columbus College of Art and Design in Ohio. While living in France from 2002-2007, she studied porcelain painting at Musée National de Céramique Sèvres, France, Manifacture of Meissen, Germany, and Museo Richard Ginori della Manifattura di Doccia, Italy. Her studies in painting began in France, which led to studies in botanical art after returning to Japan. The Thirteenth International Exhibition at the Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation will include her work.
