Artist Statement

Her work was shown at the Katonah Museum where she was selected for "All of a Piece" juried by Robert Storr, curator at the Museum of Modern Art, NY. Over 1000 pieces were submitted: 51 were selected for the show, including Miko's collage piece. Miko has shown in galleries in New York City and all around the country, including a two person show at the Hammond Museum, NY. Miko's recent work, which is uniquely her own, evolves around abstract figures, which suggest spiritual and mystical aspects. Many of her collage paintings (on canvas) use organic materials, including paper, fabric and ink as well as paint. These collage paintings have developed slowly through intense hours of concentration. The result is at times compulsive, contemplative, and at other times loose and flowing.  Miko says, "The drive to create is extremely complex, and the process of creation can be unclear until the work is finished."
