JOHN MILLER PAINTINGS
John Miller Paintings is a web site devoted to the work of John Miller, a painter who had a long association with the New Craftsman Gallery . The pictures below give examples of the wide variety of John's work but we would encourage you to come and see them for yourself. They range from his trademark blue sea and golden sands, images of Goa and Venice, landscapes and flowers, to sunsets and sunrises. They are beautiful and uplifting.

Miller was born in London in 1931 and started painting as a teenager.
His first main career was as an architect and after a visit to West
Cornwall in the mid-fifties he returned to live there in 1958 with
Michael Truscott. He was elected to the Newlyn Society of Artists in
1961 and became a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts in 1964. He went
on to show in London, New York, Vancouver and Europe and made many
broadcasts and television appearances. Visiting the Isles of Scilly led
to the beach paintings, and after living at Sancreed for many years he
painted from a house on the beach at Lelant where some of his most
evocative paintings were done. Travels in places such as Goa and Greece
also influenced his paintings, as did his deep spiritual and religious
beliefs, which shine through the colour and intensity of the images.
Gouache Paintings range from £395 (4"x4.5") to £4950 (22"x29.5")
