Short Biography

Miki Ishii was born in Tokyo, Japan, and moved to the US for high school and college, graduating from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California.

She then returned to Tokyo, where she worked as an illustrator, with work commissioned for book covers, posters, and advertising. 

While busy raising her two daughters, Miki moved away from freelance jobs and switched to painting oil on canvas, relearning the basics from both old and new masters. 

She is currently working on portraits and caricatures in the Alla Prima style, with a focus on capturing the colors of light and shadow on the canvas.
