About Miyuki Baker

Miyuki is a resident of the place where circles overlap. As a queer, nomadic, multi-racial/lingual female mixed-media artist activist and healer, she uses common or discarded objects, personal anecdotes, public spaces and performance to make accessible art that brings non-mainstream identities and ideas into maximum visibility. After graduating from Swarthmore College in 2012, she traveled for 14 months as a Watson Fellow to fifteen countries documenting the intersections of art and activism in queer/trans communities in blog posts and self-published magazines while making performance art. The eight magazines Miyuki created on this trip ( and their strong media following exemplify her illustration/graphic design, storytelling and people skills. Her work has been featured in several magazines such as Hyphen, Broken Pencil and Knik, blogs and radio shows, well-known for their interactive and eye-catching mixed media approach to activism that utilizes both online media and on-site performance and workshops. This fall she will begin the PhD program at UC Berkeley in Performance Studies. You can follow her travels at and email her at


  1. I loved both “The Book of Salt” and “Triplets of Belleville” (in fact, the latter became an in-joke between my (now ex) partner and me when we had to go visit relatives in Bellville, Ohio (eek!). Enjoy the LA sun; I’m still trapped in the polar vortex and can’t escape until March! 😉 I’ve been enjoying all your posts for months and months and months!

    • Hey, that’s awesome that you’ve read and seen both of those 😉 Good luck in the polar vortex..where are you going in March? Thanks so much for commenting–I always appreciate your “likes” :):) Hope you had a great weekend!
