Inspired by meditation, dreams, and self-inquiry, Kayla Miller’s visionary portraits personify archetypes and energies residing deep within the self. Miller’s paintings explore the many manifestations of the human psyche and tap into the infinite well of inner wisdom.
Initially sparked by an intuitive vision, and by allowing her hand and paintbrush to become channels for the divine, her painting process is guided by a universal, spiritual force. Combining aspects of realism, imagination, and profound use of symbolism, Miller’s work is not only the product of intimate self-exploration, but also seeks to become a mirror reflecting energies within the viewer’s soul. Topics explored include the divine feminine archetypes, zodiac signs, and the chakra system.
Miller aims to use her work in a healing capacity, as a series of keys to unlock the viewer’s divine inner wisdom. If you feel a resonation with a piece, there is a reason why; the notions represented by the figures exist within you and are calling for awareness. Ask yourself, who is this figure? What emotions do they conjure in me? If they could speak to me, what would they say? Observe, and listen.
Miller is currently in the process of expanding her work into affirmation cards, suggesting embodiment and connection practices for the archetypes depicted. She can be found on Instagram at @soulkeyart.
