Hi, I’m Heather Miller. I am an artist living just outside Washington, D.C. in Northern Virginia. I received my BFA in Digital Art from George Mason University in 2011. I exhibit my work throughout the region. I am a non-traditional artist so you won’t find my work in stuffy galleries. I stick to casual galleries and art shows that appeal to a lot of audiences.
I dabble in many forms and mediums of art and hope that my work inspires others to do the same. I try to keep my prices low so that most anyone can afford to buy a unique, custom piece of art rather than a mass-produced piece from a chain store. Price shouldn’t prevent you from having truly unique art in your home.
In the past, I owned a gift shop, Journeys of the Soul, in Columbus, Ohio. I also co-founded a non-profit education center, Sanctuary, in Medina, Ohio. While it existed, I served as the director of the Arts & Cultural center and was the Editor In Chief of the newsletter, The Human Voice. I created some fun, and profitable, events for the center including the Holistic Fair, a 2-day monthly event featuring performers, vendors, healers, and psychics. We also held art shows, concerts, and offered a wide array of classes covering everything from art to zen.
Why do I exhibit as WhiteRose’s Art?
Heather Miller is a really common name, even among artists. I’ve gone by WhiteRose on the internet since the mid-1990’s. My first website, WhiteRosesGarden.com (not active atm), has been in existence since 1997. It has always been my go-to name. Ironically, it’s probably only slightly less common that Heather Miller LOL.
Are you wondering if I used to be called TexelGirl Art?
I was! Around 2011 I decided the name no longer fit. You see, a texel is essentially like a pixel but in 3 dimensional space. When I started out, I primarily did 3D models for video games like The Sims 2. I even went to art school to learn to be better at that. I chose the wrong school at the wrong time for that sadly. By the time I got my BFA in Digital Art, I didn’t even want to think about doing digital art, of any kind, anymore. I decided since that was the case, the name had to go.
Wondering if you can trust me enough to buy from me?
