About the Artist

Ruth Miller lives and works in the San Francisco Bay Area.  She maintains a successful career as a professional artist while sharing her passion for art with the local school children.  She has designed an art history curriculum that she teaches in elementary schools.

 

She has studied with several nationally prominent artists, including John Salminen, Catherine Anderson, Jane Hofstetter and Marianne Brown.  She exhibits her work through the California Watercolor Association and the San Diego Watercolor Society where she has earned Signature Memberships. 

 

Ms. Miller paints landscapes, florals, seascapes and cityscapes from photographs taken during her travels, thus combining several of her pleasures ~ art, photgraphy and travel.

 

In addition to her many personal accomplishments and awards, Ms. Miller has been a major fund raiser for the Arts in the local schools attempting to compensate for the diminishing funds on state and federal levels.  

 

Ms. Miller welcomes your interest in her watercolors.  Please contact her to discuss a piece in her gallery or a custom painting created from your own photography collection.  Your photograph could simply be of your garden or taken on the trip of your lifetime.  A painting will provide a beautiful memory for you and your family to enjoy for years to come.
