|I am Warren Miller and I live in the Indianapolis, Indiana area.
I was raised in Cleveland, Ohio. The circumstances regarding my deafness is vague. My parents found out that I was deaf when I was five years old. My brother who was seven years older than me believes that I had meningitis without knowing it.
While I was growing up, I was influenced by my father's and my grandfather's artworks. I was impressed and started to learn to draw. My dad always brought a small pad and pencil whenever we went somewhere. It kept me busy, and my dad encouraged me to improve.
In 1970, my dad unexpectedly passed away. I became more focused on art and started to experiment with different type of media such as oil, watercolor, chalk, pastel, color pencils, and acrylics.
After graduating from high school, I went to Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester, New York and studied in graphic design.
After five years of graphic design studies, I decided to pursue a career in graphic design. My first job was at Indianapolis Museum of Art as a graphic designer. Nine years later, I went to work for University of Nevada for a year and then return back to Indianapolis to work for Marian College. After nine years of working at Marian College, I was hired by Wood-Mizer. I worked at Wood-Mizer as an Art Director for eight years until the company downsized due to the recent economic turmoil.
My family and friends are encouraging me to pursue my passion to paint like I did thirty years ago. Right now, I am focusing on a series of paintings on deaf culture.
