Laurie Miller Modern Art
Laurie began her creative life at the age of three with tap dancing. She then proceeded to add playing the violin, piano, and bass to her creativity. While attending Penn State, studying theatre arts with a dance emphasis, Laurie took art classes which touched her soul. After graduating from Penn State, Laurie attended CCA (California College of Arts) and received a BFA degree in Design. She then worked in the graphic design business (Landor, designing symbol libraries - HP, etc.) in the Bay Area for several years while playing gigs at night. For the past 20 years she has made a living as a recording artist/musician/bass player/singer-songwriter/music teacher. Laurie has five CDs currently published, and at night after her gigs she creates her artwork.
Laurie’s award winning artwork has shown in both group and solo gallery exhibitions and events. Laurie has sold several pieces of her artwork, including several limited edition giclee prints of her ‘Plant People’ painting. Laurie is also a member of the Women in Arts.
Laurie enjoys creating and painting in several styles. Currently she is focusing on a new style -Surreal Expressionism - (combining surrealism with expressionism), Surrealism, Abstract, Expressionsim, and Nature series. Her Surrealism style is created with oils, watercolors, acrylics, and pastels. Sometimes she uses the technique of removing masking fluid, which has previously been randomly placed, to add movement and energy to her pieces. Her artistic influences are Salvador Dali, Marc Chagall, and Expressionist artists.
“I have an inner drive to release all of the images and creations that are swimming inside of me.”
