Expressive brushstrokes bring to the painting the feeling of
joy and freedom that I also experience while hiking and being in nature. –Anita C. Miller

Often, visitors to my studio ask me where I hike to get inspiration for my landscape paintings. Chief among these places is Middlefork Savanna in Lake Forest and Glacial Park in McHenry County not far from Fox Lake. Volo Bog, a rare quaking bog, is located near Glacial Park and is also a wonderful place to hike. And, of course, I must include our beautiful Lake Michigan as a constant source of inspiration since I live so close by.
I am an Evanston artist with a studio (#18) in the Greenleaf Art Center in Rogers Park (map below). I participate in the open studio events twice a year hosted by the Art Center — May and October. At other times, my paintings can be seen by appointment (email below).
My work is in corporate and private collections. I sometimes accept commissions.
