Jodi Miller Artist Biography
Following a 20-year career as an aerospace engineer in the Royal Canadian Air Force, Jodi returned to her home provide of Saskatchewan, whose environment now informs her work. Her art explores our relationship with a place, our sense of belonging, and the humanity of connection. Her impressionist landscapes use color and texture to recall connections, memories, and experiences. Jodi challenges the viewer to overlay their own story on her paintings, making each connection personal.
Often I find that the landscapes surrounding us offer metaphors for our lives. My work explores how our environments become part of us as we move metaphorically and physically through our surroundings. No path is ever straight. No journey is ever without others. Often we encounter twists and turns, like those of a river, or experience the bumps of a gravel road, but through it all, we form relationships and harness memories. My impressionist acrylic paintings use landscapes to celebrate our paths, recall our memories and acknowledge our relationships. On every journey: We create stories. We form bonds. We share connections. We live.
