Canadian Storytelling Artist Katherine Muir Miller

“It’s all about the story behind the painting…that’s what inspires me.”

Storytelling artist simply means that I love the story behind the view or photo that inspired me to paint it. I love that I can tell a little something about each of my paintings, and especially offer an opportunity for my viewer to remember and relive a memory. The photos that inspire my work come from friends and family. I love seeing their faces as they tell me about their journey. I become so inspired by their story, I suddenly feel an urge to paint it.

I work with both acrylic and oils. My primary focus recently has been in developing my work through oils. The depth of color with oil paint enables me to breathe life into my painting. The brilliant seasons of Canada are my muse. I hope that others can feel the awe of our great country as I see it.
