This month as we continue to celebrate the International Women’s Day on the eighth of each month, we would like to share with you the artwork of Phyllis Miller who shares her work through the Veteran Art Institute, a 501(c)3 nonprofit. The Veteran Art Institute is a collective online art gallery showcasing Veterans who are also artists. Their mission is to help promote veterans’ art, educate the public about the transformative healing power of art and offer veterans a venue to exhibit and share their powerful stories with the community through art. The url is: (VAI) 
Phyllis Miller
Creating visual images that spark self-reflection and motivate the healing process is my passion. As a Vietnam-era Navy veteran, I find guiding therapeutic art groups for the veteran community enriching. Inspired by outdoor vistas, much of my artwork features unusual landscapes where I highlight nature’s graceful beauty.  I love experimenting with colors, textures, and techniques and using various surfaces, including canvas, wood, metals—even footwear! My celebration of spirit is poured into each painting. My art is a tribute to the courageous men and women of our military.
The tables belong to a 116 year old Santa Monica church. I cleaned them and painted an oceanic scene to beautify the area. I love making a difference through art!
