About the Artist:
Year: Sophomore
Major: Studio Art - Painting and Drawing, pursuing art education licensure, minoring in Art History
Hometown: Long Valley, New Jersey

Plans for the Future: After graduating from JMU I hope to get my masters at an art grad school. I want to continue to make art and develop myself as an artist. Hopefully I will also have the opportunity to teach art to others.

A Little bit more about Gabrielle: My name is Gabrielle Miller and I am a sophomore Studio Art Major at James Madison University. I am concentrating in painting and drawing while also pursuing my Art Education Certification and minoring in Art History. I always attempt to put the core of my being into my work to hopefully impact or inspire a viewer. My pieces reflect an exploration of my mental health, specifically the impact of anxiety on my daily life. I mainly utilize oil paint and fiber materials to create my work. I hope that after graduating from JMU I can continue to pursue art every day.
