“Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful”- William Morris
Kellie Miller aims to produce beautiful works by nurturing her creative process and tapping into her inner world to draw upon inspiration. By entering the silent space from which her creativity arises, she channels this magical energy towards producing both art and designed works.
Some of her work is like aerial views, combining cityscape and landscape. The predominately wall-mounted installations, which are both two-dimensional and three-dimensional pieces, depict abstracted images of nature and places around the world that have inspired her.
The messages within her pieces are about hope, self-discovery and optimism, which is clearly visible in the works she creates. Her dynamic personality is translated into each of her pieces, making the work accessible and tactile in nature.
Kellie’s intention is to create from her heart, from which she believes where the most beautiful art arises.
Kellie graduated from Camberwell School of Art in 1991, then Brighton University in 1994 and gained her MA in Arts Criticism from City University, London in 2001.
In 1996 she set up Biscuit Studio, where many artists and designers have worked, including makers from Japan and Turkey. Her aim is to continue to develop Biscuit Studio as a forum for cultural exchange and artistic practice.
Her relationship with Japan started in 2002 where she spent several months in an artist residency. She was selected to exhibit her 101 Couture cups at Mino Museum’s 8th International Ceramics Festival 2008 and has since had a solo exhibition in Tokyo 2010. Her work has been purchased and presented to corporations and trusts in Japan.
Kellie Has exhibited extensively throughout her career and museum collections around the world hold her works including Taiwan, Japan and the UK. Her art has been featured widely in the press, including The Times, The Guardian, Elle Decoration and Homes and Gardens.
