DENISE BAUMGARTNER


Inspired by my Japanese grandmother, I became interested in Japanese calligraphy as a young girl. I lived in Japan for 20 years where I studied with the great calligrapher Mitsufuji Kanei, a disciple of one of the most famous calligraphy masters of the post-war era, Imai Ryôsetsu. Now back in Switzerland, I hope to transmit and share the art and spirit of Japanese calligraphy with you.
