An Interview with Stan Miller.

Who and where are you from? 

My name is Stan Miller and I am from the United States, Spokane, Washington….close to Seattle.

How you got into this?  

I always enjoyed art from the time I was a child.  I took art classes in school and also in college. When I graduated from college in 1973 I started painting in watercolor as my full time occupation.  I have been painting every day since 1973.  I also teach watercolor classes around the world.


What is your driving force?  

Every person has a desire to express themselves.  We all use language, but we can also use music, dance, writing, theater or painting.  When I paint I can share my ideas about how I look at life, the way I look at a landscape, a person’s face.  Being able to visually share with people, the way I see the world is very exciting, this is what drives me.

What kind of work you do and why?  

I like to paint realistically, or representationally.  But, I also enjoy abstract art.  Behind every good realistic painting is a well designed abstract painting.  We need to care about how we arrange the shapes, the colors, textures, the values, how lighting creates mood.  These things are equally important as the subject matter.  I like traditional subjects, portraits, landscapes and still life…sometimes flowers and animals.  Everything we see, if it excites us, can be a painting.  I like common things, everyday things…I’m not interested in painting something strange or uncommon.  I’ll let the modern painters paint those subjects.

It is important that everyone use art to share their feelings.  Speaking is not enough.  Paint, sing, play an instrument, write a poem, dance, act…but use art to more fully express yourself and our world will be a happier and safer place.
