MARY JANE miller
Mary Jane Miller lives in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico and painted icons for more than 25 years. As a woman iconographer, she hopes to create images where people might connect to their spiritual well being, and ultimately closer to that which sustains us. "I have come to see the world as a metaphor, nearly everything which happens to us is screaming to be understood through the eye of spirit, we just need to reflect long enough to hear the message".
Miller's collection of Modern Icons are visual meditations whose root is in traditional Icon Painting. Mary Jane Miller pushes the edge of tradition in religious art. Today, women iconographers around the world continue to create gorgeous work. Their work preserves iconography as a sacred art form. Byzantine style icons are created through meditation and prayer to develop the spirit of living well. As a modern Byzantine style icon painter, I join my voice to other modern iconographers who speak and create. Women icon artists, mystics and healers who were heard in the days of the early church and then silenced, today they are speaking again.
