Soft-spoken and reticent, James Miles (b. 1957, San Francisco) is known for his miniature ink drawings of quiet scenes that tell stories. Miles' scenes blur the distinctions between inside/outside, near/far, small/large, male/female, and past/present, enticing audiences into the paradoxically immense spaces of his diminutive artwork. His scenes celebrate ambiguity, particularly in the everyday.
Miles joined the Creativity Explored studio in 1998 and has had work featured in several prominent exhibitions including This Container Isn't Big Enough at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, NY, in 2004; and in 2011, Create, a traveling exhibition that originated at the UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive.
