Collection: DIANA MILLER

Diana Miller is an abstract artist based in Bundjalung country, Byron Bay where she is surrounded by the natural beauty of the Australian coastline. Her interest in colour, form and line relationships underpins her practice while her fascination with shape-making keeps her engaged in collaging and ink sketching to help inspire and create the elements for her paintings. She also relies heavily on intuition and instinct once she begins to engage with paint on the canvas.

Her process utilises strategies of construction and deconstruction, via the chopping up and reassembling of paper in her collages and the layering, covering up and wiping away of paint in her expressive abstract works.

Her works combine elements of expressive, textural areas with bold, flat spaces of colour that create depth through their juxtaposition.

Diana completed her contemporary art studies at The Byron School of Art where she received the Graduate Award in 2018. She has held 8 solo exhibitions across Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne as well as the Tweed Regional Gallery in Murwillumbah and has been awarded prizes in the c.a.s.e Postcard Show, Little Things Art Prize, The Rotary Art Spectacular, and The Lethbridge 10000. She has been a finalist in the Clayton Utz, Omnia and BAM Prizes. Diana has completed commissioned pieces for clients in the United Kingdom, Sweden, and Japan and collaborated with different Australian brands.

Her work has been featured in several publications and magazines, including Elle Australia (2017), Real Living (2018), Home Beautiful (2018) multiple copies of Belle Magazine (2021, 2023), Australian House and Garden (2021), Inside Out (2022), The Local Project, design anthology (2023), Vogue Australia (2023).
