Rhonda Miller
South Berwick, Maine

Rhonda Miller observes the world, noticing subtle, soulful nuances that inform her art making. Growing up Rhonda spent hours in the woods of the New Hampshire Seacoast. As a young adult, she traveled extensively, but returned to the area to make it a home base. In college, she studied Art and Art Education, and has helped others gain awareness and kindle their own creative fires ever since. Rhonda works primarily as a painter, but creates sculptural pieces as well. She shows in local galleries, private collections and is a member of area associations. Rhonda has been immersed in making through; a yearlong painting project, writing a book about creativity, opening a gallery and going on residencies. She teaches art at The New School in Kennebunk, Maine. When not in her studio or teaching, Rhonda is in the woods or on the beach with her husband and their dogs. Our connection to nature runs deep. The wilderness seems to have a split personality in our human minds; one is soothing beauty and the other is dangerous rawness. I believe these are much less separate; both from each other and from our day to day existence. Reflecting on the dualities of life and nature keeps me endlessly interested and outside of my comfort zone, which is where creative potential lives. I like to experiment; playing with styles, ideas and media. Through experimentation a couple themes have shown up repeatedly in my work; the many facets of the natural world and subtle human psychology and interactions. Threaded through my experimentation is painting, specifically acrylic painting. The flexibility and variety the acrylic medium offers matches well with my tendency to work quickly and with various concepts.
