About Yoshiko Jinzenji

In 1970 Yoshiko Jinzenji - who was in North America to study western flower arrangement - stumbled across the antique Amish quilts that inspired her to start working as a quilt artist. She soon became recognized for her unique talent and since has been invited to exhibit at some of the world's biggest quilt exhibitions including the 30th anniversary of the "International Quilt Festival" (Houston, Texas, 2004). Jinzenji's pieces are in the permanent collections of the Spencer Museum of Art, University of Kansas; International Quilt Study Centre & Museum (Nebraska); Museum of Art and Design (New York); New England Quilt Museum (Lowell, MA); and The Victoria and Albert Museum.
