Mosaics That Capture the Small Moments

Andrew Miller Arts Custom Kid Portraits

andrew miller arts!

At last tally, you’ve taken 1,346 pictures of your bambino.

However, you can count on one hand the total number of images you’ve printed and framed.

Facing an overflow of JPEGs, New York-based artist and new father Andrew Miller conceived a brilliant solution to this hard drive problem.

Miller pieced together thousands of digital images of his daughters to create a pair of oversize mosaic portraits. The results wowed his wife — and just about anyone who entered their home. Lo and behold, a business was born.

The genius of Miller’s work is not just embodied by the intricate puzzle-piece assembly required to create each mosaic, it’s also found in the act of rediscovering memories and moments that would otherwise be lost forever — no matter how small.
