Biography (courtesy Askart: The Artists' Bluebook): James Vance Miller was born in Princeton, West Virginia. A love of nature and a gift of paints in 1944 led him to a passion for plein air painting which eventually became his full time work. He considered his paintings done in the Jefferson National Forest outside Blacksburg, Virginia, to be some of his finest work, especially a two mile stretch of Little Stoney Creek. He exhibited at various galleries throughout the South including at the Fine Arts Museum of Western Virginia, and was Artist in Residence for The Greenbrier Hotel in Lewisburg, West Virginia.
