Steve Miller

Steve was born in Arlington, Texas in the late 50’s. Although he grew up in several locations across the South, he now lives in Grand Prairie, Texas with his bride of 39 years, Donna.

Steve has worked as a freelance illustrator and graphic artist, creating art, illustration and graphics for several publications.

He has also worked in computer animation and digital photography and digital illustration. In contrast to the computer related visuals, he works in oils and pastels, and has won several awards in local art competitions. Steve has no formal education in art, but says: “I have learned, and am learning, from artist friends and instructors who have traveled the road before me, people who are willing to share their knowledge of color, light and other art related concepts they have learned on their ‘journey’”.

Steve says “My foundational goal as an artist is to render the beauty of the incredible creation around us, a world that was created by an awesome God.”

Cecy has been a popular lecturer, teacher, juror and demonstrator since 1976. Versatile in both watercolor and oils, she has designed cards and calendars for numerous national greeting card companies. Texture and the effects of light and shadow have become important elements in her paintings. She is fascinated with the glow of reflected light on various surfaces. Painting on location on a regular basis has opened many doors for her. She says cannot improve nature, but can rearrange and simplify it to correspond to what she feel. Traveling abroad has opened up new vistas of color and texture for her as well. She paints to convey the enjoyment and excitement of what she sees.
