Sue A. Miller Canadian Artist
Miller is a regional artist who has been working in oil for more than twenty-five years. Her use of texture and colour relationships expresses a connection to the natural world that she invents through contemplative exercise. Her work is informed by a collective imprint of landscape, but conveys the essence and feeling that evolves from an intuitive sense rather than from explicit image or symbol.
Miller’s paintings are a personal voyage into an internal perception of landscape that creates space and comfortable solitude. Inspired by shorelines around Ontario and the coastlines of Newfoundland, her journey is motivated by the relationship of environment and metaphor and by the desire to create a connection between what happens on the canvas and the observer. Most recently she has been exploring how to translate these themes into three dimensional installation work.
Born in 1965, Sue grew up north of Orillia, on the shores of Lake Couchiching. She studied Fine Art at Georgian College in Barrie, Ontario graduating in 1986. Since then she has continuously worked from her studio in Creemore. Her teaching career has included work with Haliburton School of the Arts, First Nations in Labrador & Nova Scotia, Autism Ontario and facilitating art retreats in Newfoundland. Sue is the owner/director of The Bay School of Art, providing fine art classes in the Collingwood/Georgian Triangle area for adults, teens & children.
Her work is represented in galleries in Ontario and Newfoundland and is held in private collections across North America, Europe and Japan.
