New Lightweight Hoodies. Great for laziness, business, or any other -ness.

My name is Jennifer Miller, and I currently reside in Western NY state, where I was born and raised. It’s a pretty rural area and I spend a lot of my time out in the woods. I draw a lot of inspiration from the land around me! I have what others have referred to as an ‘explosive’ passion for nature and wildlife, and indeed I go out of my way daily to study, observe, and learn about my passions. I am equally happy examining a wild bird through binoculars as I am examining bits of moss growing across a fallen tree.

My art…
In creating my art, I usually attempt to express my feelings for the subject; rarely (and usually only by assignment) do I paint subjects that I have not observed in person. Truly, I feel my most successful works are those that are inspired directly from life and things that I’ve been able to see myself. I combine these experiences with the emotions I felt as a viewer, and take them back to my studio. I also take reference photography to help renew the mind with details (I’m not blessed with a photographic memory), and combine these with other resources such as study skins to create the most accurate paintings that I can.

Other interests…
In addition to artwork, my hobbies include aviculture, jewelry making, and photography. I live with an amazing Bronze Wing Pionus parrot, a Maximillian Pionus parrot, three rescued cockatiels, and a flock of truly delightful chickens. I’ve always loved, researched, and worked with birds, since I could walk and talk.
