Announcement   Hello! I make prints and collages of plants and their seedheads and of the beautiful Northumberland countryside near where I live in the North East of England.

I also paint acrylic portraits on canvas of people and pets, there are loads more examples of these on my web site www.bykatemiller.com.
Happy browsing and happy shopping!

About

The search for a perfect present...

I stopped my work in picture research for a while when my daughter Isla was born. When her first birthday came around, I wanted to give her a unique home-made gift which she could keep forever. Nothing I found in any shop would do. So I made a portrait of her with acrylic paints in a bold graphic style, which hung on her nursery wall and she has treasured it ever since. In fact, both her and her sister now receive a new portrait every 5 years, telling the story of their childhood.

Friends saw the paintings and commissioned their own, and over the years I started printmaking too, mainly graphic images of the seedheads and grasses I collect wherever I go, and a series of woodblocks, linocuts and etchings of Northumberland. Recently I've been working mainly on my monoprint-collages, which are made from nature prints of pressed leaves and flowers, collaged up to make delicate but complex pictures, sometimes with layers of linocut or etching too.

I sell my work in local shops and galleries, and at local fairs and market stalls near my home in Newcastle - etsy is my first foray into the world of the web - fingers crossed!
