About Me

Hi, my name is David Miller. Since the early 1990′s my artwork has been largely digital. I have a large format Epson printer that lets me print on canvas and watercolor paper.

Some of my work is totally abstract, done in Photoshop and inspired by a combination of technology and my love for abstract modernist art. Other images are photo-based, often inspired by nature. And some of my work is a hybrid of these styles.

I embraced the potential of digital media in the early 1990’s while studying computer graphics at Houston Community College. This was the last formal art education I received after having studied art and architecture at Rice University, graduating with a BA in 1971, and after studying painting at the Houston Museum of Fine Arts Glassell School in the late 1970’s. During these years of formal art training I was privileged to have studied under such Houston art luminaries as Dorothy Hood, Charles Schorre, John O’neil, Bob Camblin, Suzanne Manns, Philip Renteria, and others.

Since “going digital,” I have had several gallery shows displaying both my digital abstractions and photo-based works. My work has been sold through art consultants and is now in corporate and university collections including Rice University, Texas A&M University, Chase Bank, Reliant Energy, and more.

Most of my work is characterized by bright and unusual colors, inventive shapes and techniques, combinations of organic and geometric abstraction, and the exploration of metaphysical and mystical themes.

The variety of styles and sheer abundance of this imagery is the result of both my imagination and the pleasure I derive from working with the computer and digital printer as my art medium.

Most recently I’ve been combining digital and traditional media to create mixed media collage paintings. I’m enjoying using a hands on approach again and I sense a new excitement in my work, making one of a kind paintings which I hope combine the strengths from both painting and digital techniques.
