Audra Miller is a self-taught abstract multimedia artist that loves the process of creating! Audra’s art is about the process, nothing more, nothing less. As in life, her practice of making art allows the paint to lead her path as she looks and waits to see the direction her art will take her. The ups and downs of life have taught Audra that she does not have control over what will happen, but she does control how to handle what may happen along the way. She explores this same practice in her artwork. Exploration of a variety of media allows for an interesting result that directs her art path. Audra grew up in a rural area, learning a variety of things along the way. She raised animals, grew a garden, rebuilt cars with her father, practiced woodworking, and learned to in those years. Audra even worked at a gas station changing oil and detailing cars while in college. Growing up Audra strived for perfection and fell short time and time again. She dealt with her own demons of depression and began seeing the world in a different light. During this time, she began to notice the struggles of others and their demons. As an art teacher, she watches and notices the struggles of her students, and she has vowed to make a difference in the lives of others socially and emotionally through her practice of art!
Audra’s practice includes visual art, public art, collaborative art, and community art. She leads meaningful community art projects to empower her students with social and emotional skills for their futures. Audra knows the depths of vulnerability being an artist can bring and hopes to channel that vulnerability into relatable compassion through her art. Audra brings a “flawsome” attitude where her art travels, hoping to leave the reminder to embrace your flaws because they are truly what makes you awesome!

I was raised in Henrietta/Clay County, TX. While working in West Texas for the Boy Scouts of America, I started telling my family about all of the ghost towns and cool abandoned things that were around. My parents asked that I start taking pictures and bought me a cheap digital camera. Everyone started saying "wow, you've got a great eye". Since that time in 2003, I have purchased better equipment and learned more and more about techniques, editing and just photography in general.
I call my style rusty and crusty. I mostly take photos of landscapes, abandoned things like cars, trucks, barns and houses and occasionally a few animals. Our society today likes to throw things away and go get something new. With that, we are getting rid of a lot of old things that are still around. These old cars, barn and houses are being torn down to make room for new houses or to "pretty up" the property. I endeavor to capture these abandoned things before they are gone and although I may not know their story, I have at least captured them for future generations to see what it was like.
