Stan Miller, an internationally known American artist, has been a professional painter in watercolor and egg tempera for more than forty years. Miller has earned many awards, exhibited his paintings in numerous exhibitions, galleries and museums, and instructed workshops and juried art events around the world. He is an award winner and signature member of the American Watercolor Society, and in 2018, he was on the Jury of Awards for the 151st American Watercolor Society International Exhibition.
Miller was born on a small farm in Southeastern South Dakota in 1949, where he was one of seven children. Growing up, Stan would watch his brother, Greg, draw. He was influenced by a various events in his childhood, such as visiting professional watercolorist Randy Penner, a family, along with being taught perspective in the third grade. Stan originally went to attend Spokane Falls Community College for physical education, since he considered an art major unrealistic. Nonetheless, he made the switch to a commercial arts major, and ended up graduating with an Applied Arts Degree and a Commercial Art Degree. It was during the third year of his college education where took his first watercolor class, which led to the selling of his paintings for as little as $2 per piece, before graduating. Since then, Stan has continued to live in Spokane, other than the two years he spent in Pennsylvania.
In the fall of 1973, Stan had made a decision to make a living as a full time, professional watercolorist and has managed to do that now for more than forty years. Along with painting, he started teaching watercolor in 1976, with little teaching experience. Now, he enjoys teaching nearly as much as painting, as he teaches weekly classes in Spokane as well as workshops around the world. Stan spends most of his time in his studio painting, hoping never to retire.
Stan’s recent exhibitions and awards include 2016 Quondam International Exhibition - Quindao, China; 2015 First Place - The Artist’s Magazine Competition; 2014 World Water Media Competition and Exhibition - Narbonne, France; 2014 World Water Media Exposition and Exhibition - Bangkok, Thailand; 2010, 2013 and 2018 American Watercolor Society Exhibition – New York City, USA.
