Rebecca Simon Miller

Teaching Artist Rebecca Simon Miller has a visual arts practice focused in oil and acrylic painting. Since beginning her MFA at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in 2008, Miller’s studio work has documented the plantlife and landscape of Southeastern Pennsylvania through drawings and paintings on shaped paper and wood panel. At Alfred University (BAFA), ceramics influenced her sense of texture and materiality in mark-making. Her accumulations convey the experience of absorption, and are based in the links between nature, magic, and making. Since 2013, Miller has taught in the Mural Arts Art Education Department at nine different high school and middle school sites (and now virtually!) and has assisted in the painting and installation of a number of public murals.
