I find Miki’s style to quite enchanting. There’s a simple elegance to her illustrative style that carries throughout her work and she translates between drawn work and stitched work with ease.

Similar to the stitched collage work of Raquel Alves, Miki’s delicate stitching brings these pieces together and, well, I could look at them all day. They are simple and lovely.
