Figurative and abstract sculptor working in various materials, mainly inspired by Greek mythology and the Creation. Miller was born in Simla, India, moving to England in 1947, where he was educated at the Nautical College, Pangbourne. Having rejected a career as a tea taster, from 1964–6 Miller worked his way around the world, including 10 months in the experimental surgery laboratory at the Royal Victoria Hospital, Montreal, Canada. “I decided to become a sculptor, under the stimulus of different cultures and art forms which I saw on my travels.” Lacking the opportunity to attend art school, between 1966–8, encouraged by his artist mother, Miller earned a living casting and selling garden statuary while he taught himself sculptural techniques and created enough works for a first solo show in Norwich, where he was based from 1969–76.
