Mokulito or Lithography on wood, is a form of printmaking based on principles of lithography using wood as a printing matrix instead of limestone. The technique was developed by professor Seishi Ozaku, in Japan in the 1970’s under the name Mokurito. In Japanese, Mokurito translates as Moku meaning wood, while rito is short for lithograph.
Mokulito can offer a range of textures and tones incorporating wood textures and hand carved relief marks while producing variable editions.
"When thinking in terms of traditionally editioned forms of printmaking, some of these elements may be viewed as disadvantages however, I find them liberating as they allow for surprising results. The organic and temperamental nature of Mokulito with it’s many variables, paves the way for innovation and endless possibility."

Australian born artist, Danielle Creenaune, lived and worked in London and Barcelona for 18 years before returning to live in Wollongong Australia in 2019. This experience informs her work which deals with “the intrinsic dialogue between landscape and people, how landscape is perceived through our library of pre-lived experiences and the ways in which this is reflected through the visual language of gesture.” Creenaune exhibits nationally and internationally and her work has received numerous awards including the René Carcan International Printmaking Award 2016 Belgium, the Corsair Prize for Innovation at Inkmasters Cairns in 2018 and the Manly Artists Book Award 2013. Her lithographs were selected for exhibition in the International Print Triennial Krakow 2015, Biennale Internationale D ́Estampe Contemporaine de Trois- Rivières, Canada 2009 the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition London 2018 and 2019. Creenaune’s work is represented by Australian Galleries Melbourne and Sydney and held in public collections including the National Gallery of Australia and State Library of Victoria. She was awarded Associate Member ARE of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers UK in 2021 and completed a Bachelor and a Master of Art at the University of New South Wales Art & Design, Sydney in 1997 majoring in Printmaking.
