Cheryl Z. Miller is a textile artist who creates fabric collages using hand dyed cottons, batiks, vintage fabrics and sometimes paper elements that are stitched by machine. Her work incorporates an eclectic mix of old and new, traditional and contemporary elements. She finds inspiration for her pieces from among other things medieval tapestries, and Claude Monet’s paintings, as well as daily walks with her dog, music and happenstance.
Cheryl exhibits her work mostly in New England. She has a BA in Art History from Hope College, where she also studied studio art. Originally a plein air oil painter for many years, Cheryl learned traditional quilt making when she moved to New Hampshire in 1996 and occasionally still finishes a painting or makes a quilt by hand. She lives in Hopkinton, NH and is a juried member of the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen and the New Hampshire Art Association.
