Artist Emily Miller I have spent my life on the coast, and all my artwork has its roots in my love of the sea. I have been a professional artist since 2002 with a focus on environmental stewardship and community engagement. I often incorporate natural and reclaimed materials into a wide range of work including interactive installations, mixed-media sculpture, painting, and functional ceramics. My work is included in public collections throughout Hawaii and Oregon.

I am a mixed-race Chinese-American who relocated from Kauai to Oregon in 2014. I live near the forested foothills of the Coast Range west of Portland Oregon, where I have maintained a full-time studio practice since 2016. My work also sustains a four-generation connection to Down East Maine.

My current practice is centered on Ghost Net Landscape, a series of collaborative community installations transforming reclaimed fishing gear into art, and 1000 Moons, an ongoing art installation and grief process in handmade paper. These process-centered, evolving works create space for positive transformation and healing through abundance, collaboration, conversation, creativity, and play.

In all projects, I focus on integrating rest and rejuvenation as necessities to thrive.

Artwork Commissions

Commissions are closed for 2024.

Commission a custom watercolor landscape, or a painting of your home! I can work from your photos, or one of my existing paintings. I will be in contact with you every step of the way, sending images of the initial pencil sketch and final painting for approval.

I can begin work with a 50% deposit. The entire process can take as little as two weeks for a small, simple painting, or several months for a larger painting with adjustments made along the way based on your feedback.

50% deposit required to reserve your space. The deposit is non-refundable once I begin painting based on your approval of the initial sketch.


Your painting will be completed using the highest quality professional-grade materials, including Arches watercolor paper and Winsor & Newton lightfast watercolor paints. These archival materials ensure that your painting, properly cared for, will last a lifetime.
