Born in the Midwest in 1945, Terry Miller began a career as a professional artist in 1990 after a decade of teaching in Special Education and, prior to that, working in the field of architectural design. He has traveled extensively across North America and throughout sub-Saharan Africa, sketching, photographing, and studying the natural environment and wildlife of each special location. He works exclusively in various grades of graphite, portraying his personal field experiences with delicate line work and strong textural and value contrasts. His works have been highlighted in numerous publications, including Fine Art Connoisseur, as well as in eight volumes of North Light Books ongoing series Strokes of Genius: The Best of Drawing. In 2013, the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum (Wausau, WI) named him their Master Wildlife Artist for that year, and his drawings were honored with the Award for Monochromatic Work during the 2015 Wildlife Artist of the Year competition in London, sponsored by the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation. He resides in Maryland, just outside of Washington, DC, where he finds new inspiration in the farmlands and more domesticated side of the animal kingdom.
Miller is represented by McBride Gallery (Annapolis, MD) and Troika Gallery (Easton, MD).
