Daniel L Miller

Artist's Profile

Dan is a retired 70 year old Colorado native who resides with his wife Donna in a modest but beautiful home in Pueblo West, Colorado. He was an artistic child but never pursued that talent and went the direction of one of his other talents, vocal music. He was a choir director in their local church for several years but brought home the bread and butter by way of a career in machining for 34 years.

He never had any formal art instruction or study but is considered to be self-taught. As yet he hasen't stayed with any particular painting style but enjoys painting landscapes, animals, birds, and florals using mostly oils and acrylics. He paints with a realistic touch, as he is very impressed by those who can paint something to look absolutely true to life or photogenic, which he believes takes an extremely talented person, but hopes to reach that point some day. His artwork is usually applied on stretched canvas but has painted items on wood, stone, metal and leather.

After retiring at the end of 2003 with a medical disability, Dan pursued a longtime interest and talent in woodworking. He had more time to spend in his little shop as well as joining a local AAW (American Association of Woodturners) club and only wished he had started it earlier as he discovered that his artistic abilities coupled with many years as a machinist had proven to be most valuable. To his surprise, he was  able to project a creativity and an ability to do well with his hands in this new found art. Friends told him he was able to produce woodturning pieces that were on the level of the little more advanced in this genre. After years of enjoying woodturning, his doctor told him he was no longer a borderline diabetic and must get off his feet or lose his right leg. He made the decision to return to painting, therefore, he sold his woodshop equipment and materials and converted the shop into an art studio, which would be less stressful and easier on his body as he sits and wields a paint brush. If you like or are touched by his paintings or woodwork in any way, please send comments or criticism by emailing him at: .
