Serena Mitnik-Miller is an artist and designer working in California. She splits her time between San Francisco and Los Angeles, combining her days painting, designing, collecting, and collaborating with her local artisan community. Serena’s paintings are created by hand using watercolor pigment on paper. The compositions are fashioned by interconnecting patterns of color and concentric shapes where structures break apart, bubbles stack, and pyramids multiply. Each painting must strike a balance between layers of color, repetitive contour lines, and the inherent qualities of all the materials she employs. Her artwork usually begins with an impression from the natural environment, where proximity to the ocean and coastal habitats, often become symbolic permanent points of reference.
