Lives and works in Vancouver, BC
Emiko Mizukami was born and raised in Fukui, Japan surrounded by the sea and mountains. She is currently living in North Vancouver, Canada - once again connected to mountains and the seaside.
As a youth Emiko's connection to her mother and grandmother instilled an appreciation for working with her hands, learning Japanese crafts as well as preserving and cooking food. Such natural instinct has led her to drawing and painting.
Emiko’s early work focused on recreating her visions of inner landscapes in abstract forms. These images have shifted towards a more narrative still life work in oil and acrylic that includes vintage furniture, flowers, fruits, wallpaper and all things that have nostalgic feel to them; the common thread being an inner exploration of memories and stories.Emiko's current work aims to remind us of the dreamy and magical places in our hearts and the new chapters those places bring into our lives.
Emiko is a poet, a tarot card reader and a storyteller. She is a self-taught artist and practices art at home and at Gore Ave. Studio downtown Vancouver, Canada
