Ali Miller was born and raised in New York. She received a BFA from Alfred University in 2008, and is currently working towards an MFA at Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore.
Miller recalls that as a child she was an ‘overly analytical thinker’ with an obsessive desire for detail and closure. Similarly, her fascination in the human subconscious was present from a young age.
She considers her images to be retreats of the mind. Heridealized landscapes and empty atmosphere are loaded with symbolism, designed to represent fragmented ideas created by the subconscious mind.
‘Although my hideouts might appear idealized, whimsical and light hearted, they still contain the lingering remnants of my anxiety,’ she says.
Her work has been exhibited in numerous group shows across New York.
