About the Artist

Michael Paul Miller (Port Angeles) received a BFA from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, and a MA and MFA from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He is an Associate Professor of Art at Peninsula College. Michael's paintings were exhibited at noteworthy locations throughout the nation including the Museum of Wisconsin Art, Bainbridge Island Museum of Art, and CoosArt Museum. Publications of his work include The Seattle Times, Studio Visit Magazine, and The Badger Herald. Michael is represented by Laura Russo Gallery in Portland, OR and Denise Bibro Fine Art in New York, NY.

Michael received a 2013 GAP to assist with the cost of supplies, studio space, book production, travel, and other costs related to creating additional paintings related to his current body of work. His work explores the sublimity of existence through a post-apocalyptic environment emblematic of death, disaster, and desolation, without abandoning subtle indications of hope and beauty. The imagery and subject matter depicted allows for an open-ended inquiry into the bewildering human condition, and may address an extensive range of contemporary issues.
