Mieko Asada is a mother and full time housewife. Her hobbies are: water
colour painting, baking cakes, making jam, visiting galleries and museums,
She feels strongly that clothes are made to be worn and should be both physically and psychologically comfortable to wear. She tends to feel ill at ease exhibiting in galleries where mounting the display under lighting can create an artificial impression, and where the qualities she really values, which come from the experience of wearing, are lost.
Since taking part in our Textiles Study Tour of London in 1997 she has been far more positive about opening up her thinking to wider creative possibilities.
