Arthur K. Miller

artist artwork
Hailing from coastal New Jersey, Arthur K. Miller displayed artistic acumen from the moment he could grip a drawing utensil.Miller won several painting awards in high school and graduated with honors from New York Cityís School of Visual Arts. Subsequently, he opened a graphic design studio in New York, illustrating album covers and promotions for Broadway shows and movies.

Stunned by the sudden and untimely death of a trusted business partner, he left New York City for the quaint environs of the less hectic New England area in the mid-1980's. He settled in Portsmouth, New Hampshire and then began painting portraits full-time in 1990. With encouragement early on from Ted Spencer, the curator at the National Baseball Hall of Fame, and Al Rosen, then the general manager of the San Francisco Giants, Miller began painting portraits of baseball players whose careers happened before the advent and modern development of color photography.

Miller now resides in Southern Maine, and paints from his beachside studio.In 2010 he began painting celebrity portraits and has expanded his focus to include well-known individuals, such as writers, singers, authors, historical figures, and actors.His masterful portraits speak to public identity and reflect the photorealistic tradition of Robert Cottingham and Richard McLean.Millerís artworks have been exhibited exclusively with the Baseball Hall of Fame, Cooperstown, New York, OK Harris Gallery in SoHo, and George Krevsky Gallery in San Francisco.
