Emily Miller

artist - sculptor - photographer - designer

Emily has spent her life on the coast, and all her artwork has its roots in her love of the sea. Her work explores the visual richness of coastal environments and our place within the larger network of natural systems. She sees the coast as a border between the known and unknown, amid constant cycles of change. She believes that joyful exploration of the unknown creates a positive, active environment that enriches our relationships with ourselves, each other, and our world. 

Emily is a lifelong artist with a passion for materials. Her work in different media ranges from watercolor painting to glass and metal sculpture, functional porcelain ware, digital and darkroom photo processes, and interactive installation work. So far she hasn't met a medium she didn't like. 

She is currently based in Portland, Oregon. Her background is in California, Kauai, and Down East Maine.
