please bear with me as I update my website ...
Hi! My name is Cari Miller and I've been creating art in different ways my whole life. When I was growing up, my ideal gift was an art set. Fifty years later, it still is! :) Here are a couple things about me:
- I'm a pretty much self-taught artist who works out of my home in Akron, Ohio
- I am best known for my acrylic paintings on canvas and photography, but I also use other media like markers, watercolors, color pencils, pastels, clay, etc.
- One of my small claims to fame is having six of my sun images on "CBS Sunday Morning" a total of at least 12 times! (click "Publicity" tab in the "About" section for more information)
- For the last few years my art has become very personal. I have been using a variety of media to help express some of my feelings with what's going on in the world, as well as what's going on in my head as I deal with having Bipolar Disorder 2, anxiety and PTSD (I get counseling and take meds but every day is still a struggle). Here are a couple examples: please click on "Emotional Artwork" for more.
