Hailing from the Pacific Northwest, Miriam Colman (she/her) is a queer Buddhist artist best known for her intricate abstract drawings. Usually working with fountain pens on paper and occasionally felt tip pens on wood, Miriam’s art features mainly birds and flowers as the main actors in each scene. Self-taught, her characters are hidden in cascades of vines and other natural elements, creating scenes that explore topics arising from living half in the closet. Currently, Miriam lives and works in Redmond. Her work has appeared on the set of Season 8 of Portlandia.
