Kumiko Murashima, who has resided in the United States for nearly thirty years, received her M.F.A degree in Fiber Arts from Indiana University in Bloomington, India. She is presently an associate professor of Art at Rowan University in Glassboro, New Jersey. Prior to her graduate studies in the United States, Ms. Murashima earned her B.F.A degree in Design at the Woman’s College of Fine Arts in Tokyo. She then furthered her knowledge and skills in traditional paste-resist dyeing techniques as an apprentice of Keisuke Serisawa, who was declared as one of Japan’s fifty “National Treasures”. Her works in this technique have been widely exhibited in Japan and the United States, where she received numerous prizes and awards. Her many commissioned pieces include several created for Mitsui & Co., which are now on display in the Time-Life building in Chicago. All of this culminated in the publishing of a book entitled “Katazome” – Japanese Paste-Resist Dyeing for Contemporary Use
