Kathie Miller is a self taught artist and has always been drawn to wildlife.
In 1974 she moved to Melbourne, Australia where she raised her two children and fell in love with the Australian wildlife. “They are so unique to the rest of the world, and so many of them are endangered.”
She works in many different mediums often using a magnifying glass to capture the tiniest details.
Through her photo realistic style, she creates an emotional bridge between the subject and the viewer. “I feel a deep connection with the animals as the painting progresses and want the viewer to feel that connection as well, to be part of their life even for a moment and think about our relationship with nature.”
Kathie currently lives in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in Northern California.
