Elisha Miller, Seattle, Washington, US Member Since November 2006 Artist Statement Welcome to the Alchemist's portfolio! As an artist, I have been creating/painting for about 3 years now. I studied science, math, and medicine, then went into the textile field hoping to become a fashion or textile designer. I have a BA in Textiles, and worked for a while in that industry. I moved to Washington State and began working as a professional picture framer, learning about framing techniques and art. I tried my hand at painting, a vision I had waking up one morning, and have been full force working since then. All my pieces are created solely from visions given in completion during the day, vivid dreams I have nightly, and/or allegorical symbolism created while reading various metaphysical subjects. I study alchemy, the kabbalah, all religions, metaphysics, theosophy, theology, history, as well as math and science which I combine to create lasting images of man's relationship to the spirit, or etheric world.
