From a young age, Tracy Miller was obsessed with art, horses–and the wide-open spaces of the West. She earned her Bachelor’s degree in Art from Metropolitan State University in Denver, CO. Her favorite thing to do is drive the back roads of Colorado and National Parks of the West to seeking inspiration for her art. She resides in Colorado Springs, Colorado with an awe-inspiring view of Pikes Peak, and in an urban interface with wild animals to observe. She is married to Roger Miller and has two children, Sean and Nicole.
“My Contemporary Western Expressionist paintings are based on my love of the West. My Dad exposed me to the great outdoors, instilling a love of the land and wide-open skies. My Mom influenced my love of art and culture. I grew up riding horses, and animals in nature are my passion. My paintings are done in bold brushstrokes and highly charged colors. I use a varied and distinct palette to build up layers and define the shapes and markings of the animals I paint. In doing so, I strive to capture their essence and energy.”
