Hello! I am Sydney based illustrator. Most commonly known on my online artist alias "Miyukiko"
For me, art is a way to express, communicate and inspire. Bringing a smile, captivating and moving others with my art is something I find joy in.

Although I am best known for my anime and manga illustration works, I draw a range of illustrations I adapt to different art approaches depending on what I want to portray to bring an illustration to its potential.

My career experiences include a variety of illustration work ranging from storyboarding and portraits, comics, novel covers, promotional works, tattoo designs and apparel, to game artwork and animation.
I also work as a university lecturer and tutor for game illustration/assets and animation.

I enjoy holding workshops, mentoring, teaching and encouraging others to pursue what they truly enjoy!

Very good personal drawing teaching for children, very small group. My son was inspired and wants to return.

This teacher was really helpful with anatomy and other areas of drawing that people commonly struggle in. She also rotated around her students and gave equal time to each of them, providing specialised tips that related to the drawings. 100% recommend!

There is no better recommendation then my daughter exclaiming - "Mum, I really enjoyed that!" - when she came out of the class. Fiona was a great teacher guiding them on techniques and ways on how they can improve and develop their own style and ability. It's opened a world of possibilities and would highly recommend this class.

it was really fun and you explained things very well to make sure I had an understanding of what to do, you also were very patient if I was taking too long with my drawings when trying a new technique.

I enjoyed my first class very much. Learnt a lot of basic techniques of sketches today.

Peter Shamoon Jan 2021

Thank you for giving my teens a wonderful experience. We ended up in the shopping centre nearby and when we went back to pick them up, I went inside and my 16 and 14 year old children were so happy. My son that has limited drawing skills actually showed me what was drawn all by himself and it was amazing. My daughter explained how Fiona takes you back to the very basics of drawing and guides you through each step. Fiona Thank you once again. You are truly kind and easy going. Well done.

Fiona is super friendly and definitely knows how to guide someone with limited drawing experience to complete a piece of drawing! I requested to do a drawing based on a photo of my choice as a gift to a friend and was able to complete it within 2 hours despite my lack of drawing skills. Was really happy with the end product and I definitely learnt some techniques during the class :)

Laid back, comfortable environment. Fiona was engaging and knowledgeable, with individual attention given to each student throughout.

Pricilla Viony Sep 2020

Excellent! I learned and practiced many things that for long time I struggled in at that part, and she teaches me with very well explained theories and gave me examples, and that's made me understand. Very friendly and comfortable course

Kenny Beer Jan 2020

The class with Fiona was brilliant. She spent time to understand exactly what my needs and interests were and what styles I wanted to draw.

Her teaching style is open and friendly. She gives a good grounding in theory, with examples and exercises to help get techniques right. I’d thoroughly recommend this class to aspiring illustrators.

Craig Mewett Jan 2020

My son was very happy after his class, Fiona helped him with several concepts. He is keen to go for another lesson now.

Fiona is really amazing and she taught us tips and tricks. What I really like is that she also explained the reasons on why things are drawn that way and many more. Would definitely recommend.

Stephanie Belford Aug 2019

Fiona was very friendly and knowledgeable. The atmosphere was laid back and comfortable and just within 2 hours, she helped me to become a lot more confident in my ability and taught me so many simple but effective techniques to enhance my work.

A very nice patient teacher! My son really enjoyed the class. Will definitely find her again in future when we want to hold a drawing party!

Zoe Paynter Dec 2018

Fiona was incredibly welcoming and friendly, made me feel comfortable right off the bat. She was also very understanding of the issues I had with my own work and provided insight on where I should begin to improve. Looking forward to booking another class in the future ! :)
