Joselyn Miller (b.1963 in Orange, California) applies acrylic paint to canvas in a contemporary, flat style, utilizing bold color to render her uplifting subjects. Her compositions are playful, often including an unexpected element, unique juxtaposition, or unconventional use of scale. Humor based on nostalgia and common idioms are frequent themes in Joselyn’s work. Her paintings can be found in several private and corporate collections.
Raised in an artistic, modern design-centered family, Joselyn was highly influenced by her father, a noted architect, in her pursuit of creative outlets. Since 2017, she has studied one-on-one with one of her art idols, renowned painter, James Strombotne. Formal education includes studies in drawing and painting, a bachelor’s degree in business from the University of Southern California and a fashion design degree from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising. In 2012, Joselyn survived two life-threatening illnesses, thanks to a bone marrow transplant from her brother and a relentless sense of humor. She emerged with a new-found desire to laugh, simplify her life and create works that spark a smile. Joselyn lives and works in Laguna Beach, California, USA.
