CV / Resume

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 see the coast as a border between the known and unknown, amid constant cycles of change. My work explores these transition environments to illuminate our connection to the larger network of natural systems. I believe that joyful exploration of the unknown creates a positive, active environment that enriches our relationships with ourselves, each other, and our world.

I am a lifelong artist with a passion for materials. My 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 I haven't met a medium I didn't like.

I am currently based in Portland, Oregon. My background is in California, Kauai, and Down East Maine.

Artwork Commissions

All commissions for 2020 are currently closed, including custom basket requests.
You can subscribe to my quarterly email list to be notified when I am able to accept new commissions.

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.


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.
