“Re: Creation”


Local San Diego publication Pacific Magazine ran an article in its latest art issue that featured ten of the areas most creative artists. In its unique format in which one artist nominates the person that has inspired them the most, “Re: Creation” included Miki Iwasaki in its ranks.  Nominated by San Diego artist Christopher Puzio, Miki discusses his art, his love for wood-working and what drives him as an educator and creative mind.

Pacific Magazine is a free publication and available at retail centers throughout San Diego. You can also find the full article here. If nothing else, check it out to see what the local art scene is producing, and maybe for a little  dose of inspiration.
