Liz Ann Miller
My father is an African-American oil painter in Michigan. I grew up modeling for his paintings and sitting in while he taught his college courses at Kendall College of Art & Design. I am an inter-disciplinary hair sculptor with an undergrad art degree from Towson University and an MFA from Maryland Institute College of Art.
I am a true inter-disciplinary artist, skilled in many processes and mediums. For my current explorations I have been working with wire and synthetic hair. The themes of blackness in America, cultural traditions surrounding african american hair and afro-futurism are prevalent in my work.
I've been a choreographer and teaching artist in the inner city for around 20 years; I also grew up in poverty which colors the lens through which I create. Experiencing growing up mixed race in the inner-city and the rich hair traditions within, regularly inspires my creations; past and present.
As an artist, choreographer and filmmaker, my work is all about story. Commenting on the narrative of the world around us through my work. Many people don't know that there are multiple ways to engage and be involved with the creative process of the artists around them.
