April in the Matz Gallery: Kathleen Miller
Born in Gloucester, MA, Kathleen Miller is a self-taught artist who currently resides in Rockport. Growing up on Cape Ann, she was greatly influenced by the artists of Rocky Neck and Bearskin Neck. Since childhood, she has had in interest in drawing, painting, and other forms of art, and has developed these interests over the years. Although primarily self-taught, she has recently studied with several local painters. She enjoys painting on location as well as in the studio. Working primarily in oils, Kathleen paints a variety of subjects, focusing mainly on landscapes, seascapes and other scenes inspired by nature. Kathleen has a way of infusing herself into her scenes, and each of her paintings reflects her personal impression of the world around her.
In addition to being an artist, Kathleen is also a Mental Health Therapist. She utilizes many art and expressive therapy techniques in her practice, and she believes strongly in the healing properties of artistic expression both for the artist and the viewer. While drawing inspiration from the natural world, it is her intention to impart a sense of peace, hope and healing potential through all of her creative works.
