About Justin D. Miller Art

Autumn Justine Miller (formerly Justin D. Miller) is a Chicago area self-taught acrylic artist and painter. She first created surreal landscapes with oil paints, drawing inspiration from contemporary painters in the Magic Realism style. As the Internet grew in the later 1990’s, she had access to many artists whose work was not previously viewable in the bookstores and museums of her youth. This wealth of new inspiration included the genres of Lowbrow, Pop Surrealism, and sci-fi/fantasy art from alternate art media forms like video games and movies.

After graduation from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in architecture, she lived on the West Coast for 7 years before returning to the Chicago. While living in Portland, Oregon, she entered the emerging field of digital graphics and Internet technology. Later, after a move to Boise, Idaho, she started fine art painting to satisfy her need for creative output.

Autumn does her creative work in a basement in the west Chicago suburbs. When not engaged in creative endeavors, she stays fit with hiking and biking, explores Chicago's many neighborhoods, and travels.
