Internationally acclaimed impressionist Peter A. Miller follows his artistic instincts on light and composition to expose the inner vitality of his subjects. The application of light and color projects emotionally rich expressions and establishes themes of peace, reflection, simplicity, and nature. He brands his work with dynamic composition evoking a sense of motion, depth, simplicity, and flow between natural elements.
Miller's portfolio consists of impressionistic portraits, landscapes, and still lifes portraying the harmony between composition, light, and color. Though he is currently working exclusively in oils en plein air, Peter Miller has also spent considerable time in other mediums including pasten and charcol. Peter frequently travels around the country and overseas to paint. The Maine coastline is particularly alluring to him for its rugged environment and hard working marine community. Peter integrates the natural elements from his surroundings in his alla prima methods. Painting outdoors whenever possible, he works only with natural light and the composition of the landscape.
Peter Miller was born in New York in 1949 and has been painting since 1977. He currently lives in Vermont with his wife and three daughters. He began his studies in New York City at the Art Students League under Dan Greene and Ray Goodbred. Peter later studied with Robert Brackman and Carroll Jones. He has also gathered education and inspiration from the works of artists including Velazquez, Turner, Constable, Pissaro, Bellows, and Schmidt.
