About the artist

Miko was born in Japan. She came to America, became a citizen and continued her interest in art. She studied at Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, graduating Summa Cum Laude, and later at SUNY, Purchase where she received a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree, Cum Laude. She continued her studies at New York University where she graduated with a Master's Degree in Art.

Her work has been shown at Katonah museum where she was selected for a juried show called "All of a Piece" at Katonah Museum (juried by Robert Storr, Curator, Department of painting and sculpture, Museum of Modern Art, New York City). Over 1,000 pieces of work were submitted; 51 pieces were selected for the show, including Miko's collage. Miko has shown her art work in art galleries in New York City and around the country.

Miko's recent work, which is uniquely her own, evolves around abstract figures which suggest spiritual and mystical aspects. Many of her collages use organic materials, including paper and ink, as well as paint. These collages have evolved slowly, through intense hours of concentration; cutting papers with scissors, working one collage at a time. The result is at times compulsive, contemplative. Miko says, "The drive to create is extremely complex and the process of creation can be unclear until the work is finished."

Her studio is located in Westchester County in New York State.
