Raised in a home that encouraged creativity, Debbie Miller’s evolution as a painter was inevitable. She received a BFA in Illustration at the Rhode Island School of Design. After working as a freelance artist, decorative painter, and teacher, in 2006 she returned to her first love: oil painting. She fills sketchbooks with figure drawings and has completed over 100 paintings of live models as part of her ongoing Portrait Project. Miller's work resides in private collections in the US and Europe. She lives and works in Rhode Island with her husband and three boys.
