Photo of Steve Miller in front of one of his paintings.


Steve Miller was born in 1970, and grew up in the college town of Norman, Oklahoma. In 1995, he graduated with a BFA in studio art from the University of Oklahoma. 

After graduating, he worked as an art director and graphic designer for multiple advertising agencies in Dallas and Chicago. 

Not long after 911, Miller made a significant life change and left his advertising career. He and his wife moved to the suburbs of Detroit where he would pursue his art career full-time.

Since then, Miller has exhibited in over 60 juried, group and solo exhibitions where his expressive landscape, portrait, and still-life paintings have been included, awarded, commissioned, published, written about, donated and collected.

Currently, Miller is working on a new series of paintings for an upcoming 2024 solo exhibition in Novi, Michigan at the Novi Civic Center.


”Art is either revolution or plagiarism.”–Paul Gauguin

Painting for me is about telling imaginative yet believable stories about the people, places and things that intrigue me. I’m inspired by the way light and shadow defines or hides forms, the way color expresses emotions and portrays depth-of-field, and how composition gives the illusion of balance and movement.
