Originally from Brighton, Sarah Brayer has resided in Kyoto, Japan since 1980. She received the 1982 Patron Print Award for her etching Spring Rice.
Internationally known for her washi paperworks and aquatint prints, she is one of the few westerners to have created work using the traditional poured washi technique. Washi is the Japanese word for the traditional papers made from the long inner fibers of three plants, wa meaning Japanese and shi meaning paper.

Aquatint is an intaglio technique that produces tones similar to watercolor washes. Chine collé is the addition of another layer of paper, glued and printed during the printing-press process. It allows the printmaker to print on a much more delicate surface, such as Japanese washi paper, which pulls finer details off the plate.
