American Artist Watercolor Magazine celebrated its 25th year of publication with their "25th Anniversary of Watercolor Issue" in September 2011. Following the numerical theme, the issue introduced "25 Artists to Watch," who were garnering attention in the art world. One of the artists featured was Shiho. Her accomplishments with and knowledge of watercolor painting earned her this

studied in New York, what she thinks about when she creates art, her methods of making art, and her favorite artists.

 

The following is from the aforementioned American Artist Watercolor Magazine: "This issue marks the 25th Anniversary of Watercolor. To celebrate, we present 25 tips, 25 painting locations, and 25 tools that today's top water media painters say they can't do without. "We also take a look at the innovations of early practitioners and trace the masterful use of watercolor throughout history. "Our list of 25 workshops, classes, and locations presents upcoming opportunities to help improve your painting skills at venues across the country. We hope that the diverse collection of artists, tips, and profiles in this issue keeps you painting for years to come—after all, many have helped paved the way so that we could do so. Happy anniversary!"
