Kirk Miller – Oil
Join us on Tuesday, July 16, for Kirk Miller’s “Flowerscapes” demo.
Many artists throughout history have chosen flowers for their subject matter. Kirk developed a unique approach using vibrant colors, heavy textures and abstract design elements to depict his Flowerscapes. He will share some of his ideas and concepts that attracted collectors across the country. You may be challenged to rethink your approach and develop a more personal style. Please join us.
Kirk Miller was born in Selma, Alabama. He graduated from Troy University, where he worked and studied under famed New York illustrator and portrait painter, Woody Ishmael. Kirk attended graduate school at the Instituto de Allende, San Miguel, Mexico. After leaving school he became a freelance illustrator for advertising and newspaper clients. He worked for and later became Art Director for a major engraving and wall decor firm in Atlanta, Georgia.
Kirk moved to California in the 70’s where he was offered many teaching, demonstrating and workshop assignments. Kirk wrote two art instruction books for Foster Publications as well as instructional videos on art technique. These in conjunction with portraiture and murals allowed him to truly perfect his skills.
Kirk has illustrated many magazines, books, videos, cover art, posters, and murals and has had his work syndicated in the newsroom across the United States. His paintings can be found in private, governmental and corporate collections throughout the United States and as far as Korea and Australia. He has lectured at major art schools and Universities and has conducted workshops and demonstrations throughout the United States.
After eighteen years residing in southern California, Kirk moved his art studio to Folsom. His teaching studio and gallery is location in the Historic District, 805 1/2 Sutter Street, Suite 250.
