Day 132: Cynthia Miller
After receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from the University of Illinois, I studied Copper Enameling with Richard Loving at the Art Institute of Chicago. A Masters Degree in Fine Arts from Northwestern University in 1978 completed my formal arts education. I have also acted and directed professionally and have been a member of Actors’ Equity Association, the Screen Actors Guild, and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists.
“The Arts are my lifelong passion. Copper enameling captures and celebrates light and color and depth that transforms any space. Many of my enameled pieces are designed like musical compositions: colors overlay and peek through each other, revealing lush depths under a smooth shiny surface. Just as jazz and chamber musicians explore, dialogue, and trade musical themes from one instrument to another, so color moves from one area to another on the copper. It is exhilarating to explore the evolution of a composition as each successive layer adds luminosity and depth. Each composition is unique and intended to stimulate your imagination.”
