Chrissy Miles

I’m just a lady in Portland, OR. I like to share things. I have a background in education, children’s literacy and more recently, natural healing. I am an Usui Reiki Level II Practitioner training under Becky Lerner of Plant Spirit Reiki. My blog is a miscellany of my art, thoughts, what I am up to, book and music recommendations, and more.

I’m just self-taught. I have a certain style.. as you can see. I love naive, folk, & outsider art, collage, doodles, sketches, handwriting, street art. I’m just doing my thing.

    Hi Chrissy – tonight I came home with every intent of briefly scanning my email etc and then giving all of my energy to making art. I have been sidetracked too much recently by the cyber world which can be all absorbing. I discovered your subscription to my site, for which I am honoured and I thank you. I wanted to see who you were and entered your site. I have been lost there for an hour. I am not an addicted surfer, needing to give my time to my art above all, but have discovered some amazing sites and blogs. However, I must tell you that your site has affected me like none other. It’s not just your collages and drawings, all of which are wonderful, but it’s the overall wonder and magic of your energy that touches me. Somewhere you say – “art is a meditation on mystery”. This is one of the most powerful descriptions of what art is that I know and it hooked me into exploring all of your site. I am blown away. You have inspired me and I want to subscribe to your site but cannot find a way to do this. You are with WordPress as am I, so there should be a ‘Follow’ button but I can’t find one – why is this? I want to add you to my blogroll of artists who have inspired me but need your permission to do this. Please contact me through my site or email.
    Thank you for making my evening,
