About the Instructors 

Brian Miller

Brian has been an artist all his life, but it’s only after he became part of the Daily Painting Movement in 2016 that he freely identified himself as a painter.

He holds BFAs in animation and film-making from The University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA and spent the early part of his professional career as a graphic artist, art director, interactive graphics designer, instructional designer, and web designer and developer. In the process, he taught himself programming, and now works full-time as an IT systems administrator.

This shift in focus from artistic to technical work freed up his creative energy for developing his personal art. Now he paints daily with a bold, intuitive style and a sense of whimsy. He is also pursuing his passion for helping others find their artistic voice and develop systems that will support their creative endeavors. He is an Adjunct Faculty member of The Crealdé School of Art in Winter Park, FL, and offers online art education classes and individual mentoring. He is also part of Olga Furman’s Paint Your Heart and Soul artist collective.

Brian lives in Orlando and feels grateful for being part of his local art community as well as the global community available through social media. His work is held in private collections in three continents, and is part of the permanent collection of the Arts Council of Jackson/Butts County, Georgia.

Debbie Miller

Debbie is a late-bloomer when it comes to painting — though her friends & family would probably say that she has always bloomed in other creative ways – making beautiful spaces, offering hospitality, designing colorful and tasty meals, and dabbling in a variety of crafts that let her amass shamefully huge stashes of yarn, fabric, and mixed media art supplies over the years.

After several decades as an environmental consultant to state and local governments, she decided to follow her heart into the helping professions. Now she is a licensed mental health counselor, spiritual director and creative depth coach, in addition to being a passionate artist and art educator.

Debbie’s journey into painting really began in March 2016, when she was introduced to the Daily Painting Movement. She discovered – at 58 years old – that if you practice something every day, you really do get better (and have more fun). Debbie and Brian (her husband and creativity co-conspirator) were hooked! Now they can’t imagine their lives without this rich discipline.

Debbie has a heart for helping people discover the ways in which they are creative and take steps forward in expressing that creativity. She believes that art is a source of joy, beauty and delight. But it is also a sacred storyteller that can help us heal and grow as individuals and communities. She is an Adjunct Faculty member at The Crealdé School of Art in Winter Park, FL, as well as a member of Jeanne Oliver’s Creative Network, and a part of Olga Furman’s Paint Your Heart and Soul artist collective.
