Born in London in 1962, he was educated at the University of East Anglia, Norwich, and moved to Ireland in 1984. He lives and works in Co Sligo.
Miller has pursued interests in different 'traditional' genres of representation, adopting modes of working in each case appropriate to his particular interest. His need to work from direct observation led to his adapting a commercial truck as a "mobile studio" for painting in the landscape. The resulting “Truckscapes” have been shown to acclaim in Ireland, Europe and the USA.
Some major exhibitions include: "Truckscapes - Paintings from a mobile studio" New York Studio School, New York (2008) "Truckscapes- Drawings from a Mobile Studio" Centre Culturel Irlandais, Paris (2007), Limerick City Gallery of Art, Limerick (2008), Rubicon Gallery, Dublin (2008); "Genre", The Butler Gallery (2004), The Castle, Kilkenny ; "Figure to Ground", Royal Hibernian Academy, Dublin (2003); "Closer" Rubicon Gallery, Dublin; Art Space Gallery, London (2000-01); "South African Works", The Irish Museum of Modern Art Dublin (1994); "Paintings & Drawings", Galerie D’Eendt, Amsterdam (1992) and "The Shadow Line", The City Arts Centre, Dublin (1991); In 2002 he curated the visit to Ireland of Chinese artist Chen ZhongSen including amongst other events a joint exhibition "Chen + Miller : East + West" at The Model Arts and Niland Gallery, Sligo.
