Hey there! And Welcome to my little art shop.
I encourage you to explore my work here. My art speaks more eloquently for itself than I could ever communicate here with words.
My name is Miya Bryant and I am an artist. I believe that creation is at the center of our universe and the center of our souls. No matter what we do as humans we are constantly drawn to create. My desire to create found a home on a blank canvas, in a paintbrush, and in the brightest colors the human eye can imagine. Like most children I found myself drawing on many empty walls in my home. Although my parents preferred I expressed myself on paper they never smothered my creativity in favor of clean walls. Throughout my primary education years I always made sure to be the first one to sign up for art classes and take every assignment seriously. Still it wasn’t until college that I truly found my love of abstract art.
Nobody knows what abstract art is about. For me, that's the best part, there are NO RULES. There are no rules that anyone, including myself, can make to box in this form of expression. Sure there are some rules, but what I am getting at is there is freedom. Freedom to explore the world, to explore yourself, to make mistakes, and most importantly.. Freedom to create something that has never existed before. When I sit down (floor painters unite!) to create a new piece I know that the image in my mind will be similar yet completely different than the finished project. I love the journey that abstract painting takes me on. Every painting I create challenges me and moves me to places I never knew existed. The challenges and joy I experience are encapsulated in every painting and then sent off to bring that same energy to its new home.
Currently, I reside in Raleigh, NC with my husband and two miniature poodles. I consider myself a citizen of the world and strive to make the world a better place with small actions every day. I am only 1 in 7 billion on this Earth and yet one more person pursuing their dreams and living life more passionately and fully makes a big difference. Countless friends, family, and far off instagram influencers have shown me a life of freedom is possible, I hope to encourage others to get free as well.
Thank you so much for stopping by. Namaste.
