Hmmmm. I don’t really know how to best state this as I make what I’m feeling and seeing and liking at the time I’m doing what I'm doing, in whatever medium I’m working in....if that makes sense :)
I'm Michelle Fix. I've been working with visuals for most of my professional career in the fashion and home industries. I'm also an avid reader and love architecture and almost anything regarding National Geographic!!
I had the very good fortune to work with the likes of Alexander McQueen, John Galliano, Christian Lacroix, Thierry Mugler, Alber Elbaz (Lanvin), as well as at Marimekko and have been influenced by the various talents, perspectives, and creativity I've been exposed to throughout my life. I love to mix things together so chose Mikkusu as the company name. It's the Japanese word for “mix” and seemed like the perfect way to encapsulate both the ancient traditions of porcelain and origami as well as being how I express myself creatively.
I like to mix various mediums, colors, textures, prints, ideas, energies, moments, feelings, thoughts and words…..and see what happens.
There is beauty in contrast, in harmony, in dissonance, in the unexpected. It’s a process that leads to perpetual surprise – sometimes delightful, sometimes not so much, but still....there's something there – and I find that satisfying. I hope you do too.
