b. 1953 New York City, NY

 Rome traveled to Japan in 1973 and settled in the outskirts of Kyoto. For twenty years, Rome lived with his wife and family in a hamlet of twelve households in the hills northwest of Kyoto. He learned the medium of traditional woodblock printmaking from the Kyoto printmaker Clifton Karhu and by working with Daniel Kelly. Rome personally performs all the steps required to create a print, unlike most classic printers who usually not only had printers, but carvers as well. Rome’s prints are all handmade and therefore, they have more variations.
