Breana Leigh Miller
BFA ’21 Animation/Interactive Design
My name is Breana Miller, but I prefer to be called Bre. I have created an artist name for myself titled “honidaisy,” combining both my love for sweetness in the world and my birth flower.
To me, being an artist means connecting with others throughout the world with my creativity. I have always embraced my differences, which included my marginalized identities of being a black lesbian woman. Using my personal experiences and ones I have witnessed throughout life, I aim to create content that resonates with both those that would identify with my challenges and ones who would not to give them a new perspective on life.
By both animating and illustrating, I can use my creative abilities to create pieces that are either powerful or heartwarming. I enjoy powerful pieces to challenge the mind and bring awareness to issues, and I love to create heartwarming content to bring light, happiness, and hope into the world. No matter how small, I believe that art has the ability to impact someone’s life for the better, and I strive to become the kind of person that is able to do that.
