Miriam Crotwell's Mississippi roots, Louisiana childhood, love of beauty, and love of giving back to her community makes her artwork touch the hearts of all who are fortunate to collect her work.
"I am privileged to be an artist. I think the majority of the population misses so much because they are not artists. To be an artist is to see things that others do not see. There is so much beauty all around us. Artists see, while others just look. It is an artist's job to help others see that beauty."
