LINDA BEEMAN of Owosso is one of the featured artists at the continuing Shiawassee Arts Center (SAC) exhibit. Beeman specializes in creating Mokuhanga prints – a centuries old Japanese woodblock print method. Beeman has a flare for capturing the fundamental impact of natural subject matter in her pieces, demonstrating a passion for the environment and a respect for the natural world. Her work has a tactile element as well, sometimes including raw paper edges as part of the design.
