Born and raised on the Jersey Shore, he graduated with honors from the prestigious School of Visual Arts in New York City in 1979, then became an assistant to famed artist and designer David Edward Byrd for two years before striking out on his own.
His work has been exhibited and collected internationally for over 30 years, including an unprecedented 5-year solo exhibition at the National Baseball Hall of Fame & Museum. His exacting portraits are featured in many permanent collections including those of the Baseball Hall of Fame, the New York Historical Society and the Louisville Slugger Museum.
For the past several years Miller has concentrated on introducing graphic design and typographic elements into his work. These are accomplished in a wide range of media, and his invented technique for distressing the canvas gives the feel of the work having been unearthed from a trunk stored for decades in an attic.
