Maxine Miller has devoted many years of her artistic life to
honoring and illuminating the Celtic and Pagan traditions for people of today. Her
work is rich with exquisite detail and symbolism.
Inspiration springs from the works of Erté, Beardsley and the
Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. Victorian and Art Deco influence is
combined with ancient Celtic/Pagan legend. The results are Maxine’s own
unique amalgam of story and art. While she works primarily in pen/ink
& watercolor, Maxine also creates sterling silver jewelry,
clothing, sculptured wall plaques and detailed statuary.
Born in Los Angeles, Maxine Miller resided post high school in the dingy
decadence of punk rock Hollywood, where she found beauty in the
crumbling old structures and the underground club scene. Nowadays,
Maxine is a happy resident of Portland, Oregon where she finds
inspiration in the abundant natural beauty of its landscape as well as
the creative atmosphere of its people.
