In practice, Ash Miyagawa focuses on the illustrious relationship between hard science and soft magic. She is constantly curious, and uses meticulous mark making and the arrangement of organic forms as a vehicle to engage with the natural world around her. In this way she forms a new branch of fictional biology that is largely biographical in nature.

Her commercial pursuits include packaging design, identity or branding work, editorial design, web design, product and set styling, hand lettering, scientific illustration, and narrative work. Her personal interests include houseplant keeping, insect spreading, and reading while curling up with a big glass of pinot noir.
