Self-taught artist Mika McCann has explored fiber arts since she was a child. Born and raised in Tokyo, Japan, Mika mastered in formal Japanese flower arrangement, a tradition she carries into her fiber art. Mika’s work, which she strives to keep simple, ranges from six foot sculptural pieces to miniatures only a few inches high. Her studio is built on the slopes of Haleakala, 3,000 feet above the Maui shore.
Mika’s work can be found from Europe to Japan in museums, galleries and private collections. The Hamburg Art Museum in Germany is the most recent museum to purchase Mika’s work for its collection. New York’s famed American Craft Museum has included her work for many years.
No two McCann pieces are alike. Mika uses only unaltered, locally found materials, growing a good deal of them herself. She uses no dyes of any kind.
