After receiving her BFA from Sam Houston State University, Daryl Howard lived and taught art at a school in Tokyo during the 1970's. During this time she was introduced to a private collection of 18th and 19th century ukiyo-e prints. Feeling and immediate connection to the works of art and wanting to learn more about the woodblock printmaking process, Howard embarked on an apprenticeship with master print maker Yoshida Hodaka. By the time she left Japan, Howard had become a master in the medium. She immediately began her MFA at University of Texas in Austin. Her woodblock prints can be found in over 75 private and public collections.
