Photo of visual artist Steve Miller from 2012

Yep, I’m Steve Miller, but not that Steve Miller. I'm an independent visual artist, freelance graphic designer, amateur musician, and family man living and working in Royal Oak, Michigan.

My paintings portray shared moments, and are inspired by life experience. Subject matter develops organically through self-reflection, observation, intuition, memory, and trial and error. The resulting representational imagery can be described as expressive, painterly, surreal, or impressionistic.


As a painter, I’m able to discover new places, reflect on my thoughts deeply, and develop narratives that capture and portray what inspires me both externally and internally. What I love about painting is that I can follow several different trails and allow the painting process to tell me a story.


Thank you for your interest in me and my work.
