"My works are often based on a place I have visited

and my experience while being there.

The resulting painting isn't so much a portrayal

of a particular place but a portrayal of 

the inspirational aspects that sparked the creative spirit

and my aspiration to capture the essence of that experience ."

James Miller was born in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. In high school he was taught art by the renowned Newfoundland painter Reginald Shepherd. As a young student Miller saw an exhibition with paintings from 18th century Dutch Realists at the MUN Art Gallery. The profound impact of that exhibition led Miller to pursue an education in the visual arts.

He was accepted into NSCAD in 1974, then further study at John Abbott College, Quebec, and finished his formal art studies with 4 years at the Ontario College of Art. He graduated with his Associate of the Ontario College of Art, AOCA, in 1983.

His works are included in private, corporate, and public collections in Canada, the United States and Europe.
