I don't think I'm an artist because I like to paint or to take pictures. I think I'm an artist because I see the beauty of the world and I want to translate and redefine it, hopefully inspiring others to do the same.
I've always drawn with pencils and charcoal, but it wasn't until a few years after I graduated from West Georgia with a degree in psychology, that I decided that art would become the focus of my life. Photography was an early passion that developed my desire to see the world, and moving to Washington State to work in a national park is what completely changed my life. The past decade of my life I've been honing my craft, and last year I decided to leave the service industry to focus on creating full time.
Presently I'm living in Seattle and showing work at local markets (including the Fremont Sunday Market) with my business- Mia Wyatt Glass. I have a presence on Instagram as mariamiawp, where I show my latest personal works up for sale and commissioned pieces.
I like playing with materials. Painting, screen printing, cutting glass, carving blocks, making stencils, throwing clay, and capturing images. There are examples of many of those passions here. If you would like to purchase one, or have an idea for something that fits in with what I do, please feel free to reach out. We can create something together.
