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 (queerscribe.com) 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 heymiyuki.wordpress.com and email her at heymiyuki@gmail.com


  1. Ah, I’ve been wanting an earthenware pot for ages….. but I’m resisting as I’ll be moving somewhere (out of the UK!) hopefully by the end of this year, so I’ve been trying to get rid of stuff, not buy new things. (I do have a dolsot, which at least is a nice alternative.).

    I’ve got a tiny (and not very good) bamboo steamer, so I never use it, but I do have a nice enamel one that a Japanese friend left behind when she returned to Kyoto (she had brought it from there). I quite like that one actually because it works both as a pot and as a steamer.

    Those are really cheap prices compared to Europe btw!

    • Well the earthenware pot is much lighter than a dolsot stone pot that’s for sure 😉 you should just get one hehe and you know my steamer is tiny too (almost got a big one) but since everything steams so quickly I haven’t found it annoying (yet). Your enamel one sounds awesome! And yeah the prices were especially cheap bc I found them in the Korean district of LA plus they were in a wholesale store where restaurant owners go to buy tons of things at once :):) thanks for commenting!
