Shari Arai DeBoer is a visual artist working in printmaking, watercolor and book arts. Her work is inspired by the natural world and the minutiae of everyday life. Much of her artwork reflects an influence of Asian art but her subject matter is rooted in growing up in the San Francisco Eastbay and her Japanese American heritage. Shari’s work is housed in the Alameda County Art Collection and Library of Congress Fine Print Collection, used as cover art for Edible Eastbay magazine, illustrated science concepts for Science Tarot and for an accordion book to accompany an original music composition based on the play Yoshitsune and the Thousand Cherry Trees.
