In Mia's own words, she is "an artist who happens to have a disability," creating paintings and textile works with a headwand-- a brush or stylus attached to a helmet that allows the movement of her head to negotiate both shape and pressure. Mia's cerebral palsy impacts the use of her hands and she has developed over time a system that benefits her desire and dedication to create. Mia's abstract paintings are characterized by dynamic color combinations and varying textures, each alluding to the experimentation Mia allows in her process. Her paintings are informed by her interests, her life experiences, and the natural world, allowing us to access her emotions and spirit through painting.
Mia is currently nationally represented by Artlifting. Artlifiting empowers artists living with homelessness or disabilities through the celebration and sale of their artwork.
