Micki has been in love with books for as long as she can remember.  Growing up an only child, first in Japan then in the lonely Midwest, she retreated into books as a child.  It is not surprising that she uses books and literature for her themes in her works by examining the narratives of space, through sculpture as well as artist books.

Currently, she juggles her time reading, teaching and trying to get to the studio.
