Miyoshi's printmaking experience began as a student of Tokuzo Okabe, a master silkscreen printer, in Japan. She was also involved in reproduction of Ukiyo-E woodcuts as a Kira (mica) printer. Miyoshi has given printmaking workshops in Los Angeles and New York and collaborated with artists creating intaglio and silk-screen prints in these cities. Currently she teaches printmaking classes at Cal State University, Long Beach.

The focus of Miyoshi's own work is to transform insignificant objects or mundane phenomena into seductive art works that challenge the hierarchical status of things and their socially assigned values.

Miyoshi's recent exhibitions include 70 W/ m 2 : Remarks on Solar Phenomena , a solo show at Harwood Art Center, Albuquerque, NM; Los Angeles Printmaking Society 17th National Exhibition at the Armory Center for the Arts, Pasadena, CA; and Sky in Water at Plan B, Santa Fe, NM.
