Lilian May Miller (July 20, 1895 - January 11, 1943) was an American painter, woodblock printmaker and poet. Miller lived her life “between two worlds”, connecting two hemispheres—the East and the West, as well as the feminine and the masculine. In the world of art she marked her place with imagery, while she attended presentations in traditional kimonos, and signed her paintings with a monogram. In her personal life she hiked California’s San Gabriel Mountains and wandered through Alaska. She never married and she supported herself solely through the sale of her art. Miller saw Japanese painting and print-making as her first and foremost mode of artistic expression.
She practiced oil painting, watercolor painting, book illustrations, photography, and printing. Trained in Japan in traditional painting styles and techniques, Lilian May Miller created lyrical sketches, ink paintings and woodblock prints representing people and landscapes from Japan and Korea, the countries where she spent most of her life. wiki - Read more: HERE
