Miyuki Shinkai’s mixed media installation piece called ‘Unison’ incorporates hand blown glass and driftwood. In this recent work she explores the concept of oneness, collaboration and community.
She draws inspiration from her past migrating to North America and her present residing in a beachside community on the sunshine coast. Coming to North America from Japan, Miyuki found that expressing herself through art helped her overcome language and cultural barriers. Art has always been an ultimate communication method for her to interact and integrate with society.
