Kumi Korf
Ithaca, NY
Tokyo Geijutsu Daigaku and Cornell University

Kumi Korf studied architecture in her native Japan and earned an MFA in printmaking from Cornell University. Her creative endeavors since then have included designing houses, painting, printmaking and artists' books. Currently she divides her time and energy between printmaking and artists' books. Her earlier training in architecture forms an amalgam wit her sculptural books. Similarly, printmaking and artists' books have coalesced as well. Her works are collected in many libraries and museums, nationally and internationally.
