Miki Sato is an illustrator from Toronto, Canada, who uses textiles in her work with charm and style.
“I use a technique that involves the layering of different surfaces and textiles, creating three-dimensional and tactile pieces.”
“I really enjoy working with all types of surfaces including papers, fabrics and sometimes thread. I hope to create delicate and soft pieces, that hopefully brings a unique view to an otherwise mundane situation.”
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.
