Dorothy miller

I have been sewing since I was ten years old. I have always enjoyed working with fabric and color to make unique clothes. I added a love of art and design at UCLA..

While following my army husband around for 17 years, I looked at art in many museums everywhere we went. After the army we settled in Virginia and started our own consulting business. To keep my mind alive, I became a docent at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden where I gave tours for 30 years.

Since I have joined the Potomac Fiber Arts Gallery, I have been able to combine my love of art and fabric into making unique bags. I love the creative process of manipulating colors and textures into my own designs. I draw on the art I’ve seen in my travels in Japan (where I studied flower arranging), Africa, China, Europe, India, Thailand, and the US. I particularly love modern art and try to convey this fondness through all of my designs. I enjoy my association with the Potomac Fiber Arts Gallery as a way to indulge my creative impulses.
