These paintings are from a recent and ongoing series titled “Silent
Barks.” They are about patterns on tree barks and animal barks that
appear to be measurable and suggest specific. These patterns are quite
interesting and some of my current work continues to explore barks to
enjoy their beauty and for possible understanding.
In our natural habitat outside Ashland, I think of life as art. Seven
years ago Michael Bianca joined me, and his talent, humor, and
experience are perfect for creating together. We paint and weld, using
discarded tools and rusted metal, with an eye for three dimensions.
Our paintings and sculpture are always one of a kind, fitting fragments
together aesthetically. Abstract or whimsical, we love using found
objects, striving for something aesthetically interesting.
Millie uses the rich colors, simple shapes, and nostalgia of traditional
wood block prints, combined with spontaneous line, to express her joy
of open spaces and biodiversity. Several National Park residencies have
broadened her perspective including Glacier National Park, and Lassen
Volcanic National Park. She has shown internationally in Leigh Yawkey
Woodson Museum’s “Birds in Art,” and recently was juried into the
Society of Animal Artists.
“I use paint as a form of navigation. The process of painting is my way
of staying present in a world where I’m hypnotized by the frenetic pace
of our decadent disconnection. My work helps to bring me back to center.
The paintings are a reflection of what I see.”
