Hibiki Miyazaki

 

Miyazaki creates works on paper and panel that weave wry humor and intentional ambiguity into narratives laden with psychological tension. In addition to her artwork, Hibiki Miyazaki has worked for twenty years as a personalization artist for a family-run headstone company and it was there that she discovered the sandblasting technique recognized in her intaglio prints. Miyazaki’s work can be found in the collections of the Portland Art Museum, Hallie Ford Museum, and Oregon Health Sciences University.

Hibiki landed a job as a personalization artist at a small family owned headstone and public art granite company. It was at this company that she discovered how to sandblast copper plates for her printmaking projects. Hibiki found that sandblasting copper plates creates an all over “sandy” texture that can be burnished and polished to create velvety, soft tones in her dream-like images.

In 2007, Inkling Studio closed and Hibiki began to explore other mediums, specifically painting and drawing. In 2017, she finally broke ground in her backyard to begin building her dream art studio that she has been waiting for over a decade.
