Bobbi Miller’s current work is based on reactions to a change of place when she found herself in Florida during the initial virus sequestration and not in her rural Wyoming home. Walks on the beach allowed for time to meditate on world happenings. These meditative diversions fostered new perceptions of color and shape and texture, widening her imagination and creativity.
Abstractions, based on the natural world, feed a curiosity for experimentation while she acknowledges her ongoing desire to hone the craft of representational art through the practice of figure, portrait, landscape and still life motifs.
Bobbi’s education includes bachelor and master degrees in Special Education with minors in Fine Art, which have been augmented with many diverse national and international classes. Several notables are the Salzburg International Summer Academy of Fine Arts, the New York Studio School and workshops with Wolf Kahn and Wayne Thiebaud, and mentorship by Jeremy Morgan of the San Francisco Art Institute. After leaving the teaching world, she earned an associate degree in graphic design, and following freelance work, commenced her own art making.
Of utmost importance to Bobbi’s journey of Embracing Place, is a focus on the camaraderie resulting from initiating the gathering of artists, whether pioneering an art critique group in North Carolina or a plein air group in Wyoming and in supporting the arts community on a local level. Her current concentration, motivated by the worldwide virus pandemic, is on Suicide Prevention Awareness. Proceeds from her sales of art prints currently benefit the National foundation for Suicide Awareness. In the summer of 2021, an exhibit of her work will benefit St. John’s Health Foundation in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, a non-profit organization.
