Katya’s journey began when she encountered the Statue of Freedom in 1993, which led to 25 years of research as she sought to understand who the statue is. She was asked to write articles and given a Fellowship by the US Capitol Historical Society and the Architect of the Capitol to write a book. The results will be a children’s book, “Who’s That Lady on the Capitol dome?,” and a non-fiction book “Lady Freedom - Heart of the Nation.” With a 30-year career as a metalsmith, the voice of the bronze statue resonated deeply inside her. Katya’s devotion to sharing this story comes from the heart and soul of an artisan, a wordsmith and a passionate citizen.

Katya Miller is a diligent researcher and an able and talented writer, so I know her proposed book will be thoroughly researched, informative and readily accessible to the public. Over the years that we have corresponded about her project, I have been impressed with her persistence, enthusiasm and dedication to this project, Her work will not only celebrate the artistic and aesthetic aspects of the statue but it will also add great depth to our historical and symbolic understanding of the work itself.
