Kirk Miller – Oil on Canvas of California Coast

Join us and meet Kirk Miller for his artist demo – Oil on Canvas of California Coast – on Tuesday, September 19, 2017.

Kirk was born in Selma, Alabama in the early ‘50s (don’t you just love the accent!). He graduated from Troy University, where he worked and studied under famed New York illustrator and portrait painter, Woody Ishmael. After earning two degrees at Troy, he attended graduate school at the Instituto de Allende, San Miguel, Mexico. After leaving school, Kirk became a freelance illustrator for advertising and newspaper clients. He later became the Art Director for a major engraving and wall decor firm in Atlanta, Georgia.

In the 70’s, Kirk moved to California. 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 newspapers 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.

Kirk moved to Folsom after eighteen years as owner of the Kirk Miller Art Studio, a teaching studio and gallery in Tustin, California. Kirk has moved his teaching studio and gallery to the Historic District of Folsom.
