Sumi ink painting uses techniques found in Japanese ink painting. The goal is simplification and a suggestion of the object the artist sees. This style was heavily influenced by the Oriental understanding that black ink is not simply black. It has many different shades, representing the highest level of color simplification. Traditionally a white surface is used and within this class rice paper will be used as well as students learning to create their ink using a stone. The classroom atmosphere will be quiet and meditative with Japanese music played during those times when the instructor, Mieko, is allowing students to work. Unlike many of today’s art classes, this will be very different and an experience that is quite unique.

She has studied art throughout her life an has worked in acrylic, watercolor, casein, enameling/cloisonne, clay sculpture, and sumi-e using Japanese brush and sumi ink. Mieko took sumi-e lessons as part of her regular curriculum during her school years.

Mieko has traveled abroad for many years, enjoying multi-cultural arts, histories, and people. In the past few years she is trying to bring fine arts to the communities where she lives through the Jefferson Pilgrimage Fine Arts Show, Marshall Art League Spring Show, Marshall Regional Arts Council’s Membership Art Show and more. Through volunteer work she enjoys meeting area artists.

In recent years she owned The Gallery in Jefferson and worked at Mieko’s Studio also in Jefferson.

Mieko is a member of the Hoover Watercolor Society in Shreveport, Marshall Art League, and the Jessie Allan Wise Garden Club in Jefferson. She has won numerous awards for her outstanding creative art.
