My name is Michelle Cline, but I prefer to go by my online alias, Mira (Meer-ah) Silver. This has been my alias since 2001 and has stuck with me ever since.
I am a self-taught artist and have been drawing and making art since I was a small child. I would pause Disney movies on my VCR (yup I’m ancient) and draw whatever was on the screen. During middle school and high school, I spent more time doodling on my binders, dividers, and notes at school than I did on actual classwork.
It was during my teenage years that I was introduced to digital mediums and would create art using Paint Shop Pro, Photoshop, a scanner, and a roller-ball mouse.
Throughout my childhood I was a gamer and anime/manga nerd and that is still reflected in the style of artwork I do today, however I would love to grow into my own unique style.
The hardest struggle is motivation, drive, and confidence to continue to create artwork. It is my goal to work through this long lasting art block I have faced for nearly a decade and create new pieces for myself and others to enjoy.
Currently I am enrolled in college and working towards a my undergraduate degree in Physics with an Astronomy concentration. This takes up the majority of my free time.
I also stream games and drawings on Twitch when I can.
Thank you for visiting and taking the time to get to know me!
