Mary Jane Miller is an accomplished, creative artist in several media. Over a career of over forty years, her work has always been grounded in artistic principle, immense talent, and knowledge of the medium being used. In her work, you meet a passionate, disciplined, unruly, compassionate woman of aesthetics, curiosity and insight.
She has an inquiring mind that constantly explores, questions, wonders (and wanders), argues, and engages whatever and whomever is around. In short, you meet an extraordinary, strong, capable woman. For decades now, Mary Jane has documented her collections through writing Icon Painting Books. Through this medium, she invites men and women to journey with her, to go beyond our usual understanding of the Father through the Son in the Spirit. Miller's books are invitations to prayerful explore the role of women in our world from the perspective of icons.
