Masako Inkyo began her Japanese calligraphy training at the age of three. After continuing her practice throughout middle school, high school and college, she received her Master’s degree in Japanese Literature/Calligraphy at Yasuda University. Ms. Inkyo is a member of the three largest Shodo professional associations in Japan. In all three she holds the highest rank, based on work she has submitted. She has also received many awards, including first prizes in both Shodo and pen calligraphy in national competitions sponsored by the Ministry of Education. Currently, she teaches Shodo at the Japan Society and the Keio Academy of New York while also undertaking various design commissions.
In March 2015, Ms. Inkyo gave a workshop and demonstration, themed “The Tale of Genji” at Middlebury College in Vermont to celebrate their acquisition of an authentic and historical Japanese folding screen (byōbu). Also in 2015, the Harrison Public Library completely renovated their building and placed a piece of Masako Inkyo’s art on permanent display in the newly refurbished premises. Most recently, Masako made several Shodo designs for the newly opened Morimoto Asia Restaurant at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. Masako Inkyo’s art was featured in the book, 100 New York Calligraphers.
