The African Heritage Month art that you see on this website is by Bria Miller.
Hailing from Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, Bria Miller is a multidisciplinary visual artist, graphic designer, facilitator, curator, disc and video jockey (DJ and VJ), and performer. She is self-taught, and in the past year, she has been learning to create digital art and animate.
For the last 4 years, her artwork – stickers, art prints, and original paintings – has been sold during many events, markets, and in other spaces in Halifax, NS. These spaces include Alteregos Cafe, Glitter Bean Cafe, Bus Stop Theatre, Halifax Zine Fair, North by Night Markets, Venus Envy, and more!

As part of her artistic practice, Bria creates digital illustrations for many projects such as books, educational resources, social media content, collaborative merchandise design, and more. When she has time, Bria explores and experiments with making ink illustrations with alcohol and water-based inks. She also enjoys learning many new skills, such as making short films and paper puppets for animation films.
