Milliande Artist Reference Photos Library Running an Artist Community for Women has opened my eyes to just how different our worlds are. The daily view of one womans window is completely diffeent in season, colors and natural ephemera than another artist woman living on the other end of the world .

What unites us is the creative drive .. the entering into the flow of imagery that fuels our artworks ... When the art supplies are the same, the imagery surrounding us at home, on our travels our imaginations are seeping into our art .

I travel a lot and I live in an area with many photo opportunities.. so I would love to share some of these photos taken with my digital camera, some with my iphone photography apps for you to enjoy and use as reference photos for your own artworks .. my way of taking you on a journey viewed through my eyes ..
...milliande Here I will list an alpabetical photo reference of images that inspire the artist in all of us. From landscapes, doorways and windows, to animals, foilage, churches , cemeteries and historical photo libraries..

I am intriqued by the notion of universal consciousness and choose to peek closely at the small particles that make up existence.

Human and living form cell biology, the interplay of microcosm and macrocosm, quantumphysics and the spiritual connection to the Self all nurture me with an endless stream of inspiration.

The female form and its nature of being, the beauty of motherhood, viewing the world in fragments rather than wholes and the palpable energy exchange and communication between them are central themes in my artwork.

I enjoy making the invisible visible and creating openended visual artworks that invite the viewer to explore deeper within their own layers of perception.

Contemporary Mixed media art techniques provide a rich playground for my artistic impulses and allow room for an individual approach to the multilayered facets of my artwork.
