Contemporary artist JD Miller combines painterly chromatic expression with a sculptor's physical application of paint to create multi-dimensional images on canvas. The result is an emotional explosion of 3-D sculptural oils, rich in light, form and color, which create a unique mood and signature ambiance.
Traveling extensively throughout the United States, Jamaica, Costa Rica, Cayman Islands and Mexico JD Miller creates everything from expressionistic landscapes to abstract reflections of the human spirit.
The vivid colors and deft lines of the cartoon masters Walt Disney and Walter Lance formed the early basis for JD Miller's visual style. JD Miller also studied guitar, trumpet and piano, playing nightclubs when he was sixteen and becoming a studio musician at eighteen. He graduated Magna Cum Laude with a B.S. from the University of North Texas and apprenticed in sculpture and ceramics with master sculptor John Miller at Texas Women's University. He studied oil painting with master colorist Liz Richardson for two years before beginning his professional painting career in 1998.
In October 2004, he founded the "Reflectionists", a group of artists whose work mirrors the positive power of life and the universe. "I call myself a Reflectionist because I believe the universe mirrors each of us in a unique way. My goal as an artist is to interpret that phenomenon, and my art is a multi-dimensional reflection of life and the way I perceive the world". His reputation has increased dramatically in recent years, as recognition of his 3-D oil technique has become widely acknowledged by both artists and collectors alike. Mr. Miller presently works out of his studios in the design district of Dallas, Texas
