Bio:
Brenda Miller has enjoyed living in Ann Arbor with her husband and daughter for many years. She earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Eastern Michigan University in 1989 and has worked in art and design for much of her adult life. Her art focus is in collage and wax encaustic. She has shown her work in the Chelsea River Gallery, Legacy Land Conservancy Exhibits, Ann Arbor Women Artists shows and has won a number of awards in the UM Employee Gifts of Art Exhibit. She has also created the art for more than a dozen Ann Arbor Observer covers. Brenda has worked full time in the Mott Hospital Newborn Intensive Care since 2002. Inspired by her experiences following her daughter's birth in the unit, she has been developing support programs for parents there.

Artist's Statement:
I've been inspired by years spent living in the Rocky Mountains and in my Ann Arbor home, surrounded by woods. I'm grateful that the gorgeous natural areas of our state and country have shaped my love of beauty and my interest in creating art, which in turn has led me to support efforts to protect the environment. I continue to seek a personal way to help, despite sometimes feeling frustrated and ineffectual. In 2009 my daughter Emily and I spent a week in Colorado, and while she studied violin I spent whole days filled with mountains and the beginnings of this body of work. It reflects my love and concern for the well-being of our environment, through images informed by global warming and its effects on the most vulnerable. My deepest wish is that this exhibit would be a springboard for impressions and memories of our love of the land, moving us all to help protect and sustain our natural surroundings.
