Miller’s business has grown to include her online greeting card store, and her Etsy shop that features original paper dolls. She has illustrated a wonderful collection of Princess, Mermaid and Fairy themed children’s activity books and paper dolls for Dover Publications, and has become well-known to paper doll collectors internationally. Her paper dolls have been printed in magazines such as Faerie Magazine, Paper Doll Studio, Paperdoll Review, Paper Doll Circle in UK and S Moda in Spain. Anne of Green Gables is her first book for Paper Studio Press.
According to Miller, “Creating paper dolls combines passions and interests that I’ve had since I was a small girl. To me, there's nothing better than a Sunday afternoon with a good movie and drawing and designing paper dolls in my studio. I went to Art School to study life drawing, painting and fashion illustration and have made a career doing all of these. How lucky am I?”
