Don’t miss Gallery Nights tonight at Jest Gallery. We’ll be featuring new works from Laura Miller.
Improvisation: creating in the moment and in response to the stimulus of one’s environment and inner feelings.
Laura Miller speaks about her art: In the book “Free Play” by Stephan Nachmonovitch, he writes that ‘play’ is the starting place of creativity. It makes us flexible and enables us to rearrange our capacities so that they can be used in unforeseen ways. It is with this spirit in which I approach art; with immediate response and the freedom of playfulness.
I am a fulltime artist living in Dupuyer, Mt located on the Eastern Front of the Rocky Mountains. I went to the Academy of Art College in San Francisco and have a design degree from the University of Georgia. I have been juried into the Charlie Russell Art Auction, the Montana Land Reliance Art Auction, the Shadows of the Past Art Auction, various Hockaday Museum art shows and the Missoula Museum Triennial for Contemporary Artist.
I paint images in a loose and whimsical style. I either use western imagery or I look for images in the paint; in either case, I approach the painting spontaneously and let my sense of color and design guide my way through.
