Martha Miller Gail Spaien and Her Story of Sisters, 2006 mixed media on Rives BFK, 29" x 41"
Flowers as medium. Beautious. MECA Professor Gail Spaien's installation currently on view at the ICA Gallery on Congress Street in downtown Portland. I took this picture through the front window after teaching last week. What a welcome sight on a cold, dark November night!
I am an artist, an art teacher, a mother of five children, and a grandmother of four, and I live with my husband and our two cats in the woods of Woolwich, Maine. I teach drawing classes through the Continuing Studies Department at Maine College of Art in Portland, and now privately in my new (!) studio @ 72 Front Street, Bath. My blog 'Martha Miller' shares my art, my process, and my inspirations, and my blog 'Not Bad Thing' showcases my daughter Lisbeth's artwork and process. It is also where I share my experience as a mother of an adult child with special needs. You can see more of my artwork on my website @ www.marthamiller.com
