"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.

My aspiration is to capture the essence of that experience."

James Miller was born in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.


As a young student, James saw an exhibition of paintings from 18th century Dutch Realists.

The profound impact of that exhibition inspired him to pursue the study of classical drawing and painting.

He finished 6 years of his formal art studies with 4 years at the Ontario College of Art.

He graduated with his Associate of the Ontario College of Art, Honors, AOCA, in 1983.

James Miller has been working fulltime as a professional artist since 1985.

He currently lives and works on the island of Newfoundland. 

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