William H. Miller
Myrtle Beach, SC
Recently moved to, living and working in Myrtle Beach, SC, William H. Miller draws from his years as a fine artist with a successful studio in Houston, TX in the Washington Avenue Arts District. In 2014 William was recognized by the Mayor of Houston with a proclamation making June 30th, 2014 William H. Miller day to celebrate his contributions to the Houston art scene and his iconic cowboy boot paintings and tour of Texas to seek inspiration for a new body of work he is pursuing.
William uses experience in computer graphics and traditional fine art methods to create pieces that embody the abstract using concepts of shape, line, texture, pattern, form and color.
In 2012, the opportunity to create full time as an artist presented itself to Billy. He has had the fortune of showing his art in Texas in Dallas, Fort Worth, Austin, and Houston as well as in New York and California.
In 2013, furthering his drive as a full-time artist Billy was selected into the Escapism mentorship program of John Ross Palmer. Billy thrived as a full-time artist by cultivating collectors statewide and using his artwork and painting live to pay it forward through many charitable organizations. At the end of his mentorship he was voted Escapist of the Year by his peers in the program.
In December 2014, Billy relocated to the Myrtle Beach area to continue his art making, adding new collectors and becoming a major force in the art scene in South Carolina. He is thrilled to invited to become a Board Member of the Franklin G. Burroughs-Simeon B. Chapin Art Museum of Myrtle and give back and play a role in the local art community of Myrtle Beach.
