My name is Hiné Mizushima, and I am a craft artist who currently lives in Vancouver, Canada, with my family. I was born and raised in Japan. I majored in Japanese traditional paintings in Tokyo.
My main work is soft sculpture. I also make stop-motion animation music videos (mostly for They Might Be Giants), dioramas, and miniature collages, using my felt sculptures. I recently started Japanese Kogin embroidery and punch needle as well.
My work has been exhibited in galleries in many cities in the US, Japan and Australia, and published in books, magazines and DVDs as well. I sell my felt creations, embroidered brooches and prints on my Etsy shop, and also have Society6 and Redbubble art print & goods shops.
