Born in Los Angeles, Maxine Miller resided post high school in the dingy decadence of punk rock Hollywood, where she found beauty in the crumbling old structures and the underground club scene. Nowadays, Maxine is a happy resident of Portland, Oregon where she finds inspiration in the abundant natural beauty of its landscape as well as the creative atmosphere of its people.
Maxine a celebrated artist whose work centers around the Celtic and Pagan cultures. She has devoted many years of her artistic life to honoring and illuminating these traditions for people of today. Her work is rich with exquisite detail and symbolism.
Inspiration springs from the works of Erté, Beardsley and the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. Victorian and Art Deco influence is combined with ancient Celtic/Pagan legend. The results are Maxine’s own unique amalgam of story and art. While she works primarily in pen/ink & watercolor, Maxine also creates sterling silver jewelry, clothing, sculptured wall plaques and detailed statuary.
