Milaya Crowder was born in Monterey, California. However, she has traveled her entire life and now calls Germany home. Milaya C is a fine art abstract painter and photographer. She is self-taught in the finger painting techniques found in many of her paintings.
Furthermore, she has been commissioned for her abstract artwork and photography. She has had a Vernissage in Mainz, Germany as well as an art show in a Weingut Hagemann in Weinolsheim, Germany.
Milaya C describes her art as a conflict of order and abstract that she feels portrays herself as an artist. Her style is an integration of abstract calligraphy with geometric composition. While she enjoys painting abstract in general, her favorite things to paint are feelings. She feels like her travels have taught her that no matter where in the world, or the language that is being spoken, feelings are human and universally understood.
