Michiko Smith                                            Healing Art captures your heart!

New Step  24



Introduction


Michiko grew up in Oomiya City, near Tokyo, Japan. She emigrated to the US in 1981 and became an American citizen in 2000. After residing primarily in the vibrant Los Angeles area, she relocated to scenic Hamilton, NY in 2011, while continuing to spend significant time in SoCal.



Work


Through a close friend she became interested in New Age beliefs over thirty years ago. Michiko started painting in 1992 after observing a brightly colored mobile of tropical fish. She considers her work to be New Age healing art and creates her work from the viewpoint that one can feel peace, love, passion and positive energy by experiencing colors, shapes, and through the resulting vibrations of happiness.
