Trained as a traditional painter using brush and ink, Shinoda has achieved similar effects with screenprint. Her work is very calligraphic, capturing the sweeping gestures she makes across the plate. Always the painter, Shinoda usually hand-colors each impression with slashing red strokes. Although her prints seem so spontaneous, they are the result of a lifetime of rigorous practice and are based upon nature. "Certain forms float up in my mind’s eye; aromas, a blowing breeze, a rain-drenched gust of wind," the artist describes. "I try to capture these vague evanescent images and put them into a vivid form."
