      About the Tutor

      Sumiko Eadon is an artist and printmaker based in Leicestershire. She is originally from Japan where she learned woodblock printing and wood engraving. She obtained a first class Fine Art degree as a mature student at Loughborough University in 2013.

      Since graduation, she has been involved in some residencies, exhibitions and projects, and developed her portfolio through usage of digital photographic images and experimental moving image, exploring the theme of place, space, temporality and memory.

      Her recent work is more drawing based and employs techniques such as photo-plate lithography and mono print. She constantly practices and experiments with different ways of working.
