Hello. I’m Miyuki from Japan.
I am very pleased to be in Florence for the award of the international Art competition. I’m a painter and writer with 25 years over as a professional, but I want to return to the beginning again and learn more in Florence, at the sanctuary of Renaissance. I intend to further evolve my artistic and literary here. Also, I’m a textile designer. Here, I’ll carefully observe the differences of the western culture, new ideas, and designs. Through this blog, I would like to share with you my discovery and various notice.
