Miyuki was born and raised in Japan. She has always enjoyed creativities since she can remember, such as drawing, painting, and paper cutting, then her mother introduced sewing, knitting, crocheting. It was very natural for Miyuki to pursue art as her career. She attended Seian Woman’s college in Kyoto for a year to study textile, which was the first experience she dyed fabric. She earned BFA in Interior Design from Osaka University of Arts in Japan.
In 2000 Miyuki took a journey to the U.S. to explore a different culture. She re-discovered an interest in textile while she was studying at University of North Texas. In 2006 she received MFA in Fiber/ Artisanry from University of Massachusetts- Dartmouth.
Her visual inspiration and aesthetic are often from Japanese heritage. She calls herself a “maker” rather than “textile artist” because her curious and adventurous personality let her to use various techniques and materials for different purposes. She has been passionate for education and currently teaching at Marshall University. Her artwork has been exhibited nationally and published in magazines and books: Stitched Jewelsand Fiberarts Design Book 7.
