She studied art at the California School of Fine Arts and participated in annual exhibitions of the San Francisco Art Association. She taught art during her incarceration in Tanforan and Topaz. Hibi resettled in New York City where she continued to paint while working as a dressmaker, domestic, and factory worker to support her two children. She moved back to San Francisco in 1954."
