About Judy Miller
Judy Miller lives in Tucson, Arizona and holds a M.F.A. in Photography, a M.A. in Printmaking and a B.A.E. in Art Education. Articles about her work have been featured in MacWorld Magazine, Step-by-Step Electronic Design and Photo District News.
Miller’s first job after graduating was serving as an Artist-in-Residence followed by seven years of teaching Photography, Printmaking and Design, at university and college positions. For more than a dozen years she freelanced as a Photo-Illustrator creating illustrations for a variety of clients including Editorial applications, Advertising Agencies, Designers and Corporations. Throughout this time, Miller continued to create her artwork.
Miller was traditionally trained processing silver and color film and prints in wet darkrooms. Currently, she crafts her images and prints in her digital darkroom. In 2003, Miller purchased her first large format digital printer so that she could produce archival prints of her work as well as collaborating with other photographers and artists to print their images.
As a collector of photographic information from her environment and travels, Miller is attracted to a wide range of subjects including landscapes, architecture, kitsch and wax figures. While studying her library of photographs, Miller discovers image relationships that become the catalyst for the content of her final image. Her photographic composites (a.k.a. Dioramas) incorporate photographic elements from multiple images. Her goal is to create a convincing photographic composite with enough information to allow the viewer to interpret the content or meaning of the image.
Judy Miller actively exhibits her work in galleries and museums. Tucson Museum of Art will exhibit a large selection of Miller’s Dioramas, Oct. 2010 – Feb. 2011. Her artwork is in numerous permanent and private collections including Amon Carter Museum, Dallas Museum of Art, Erie Art Museum, Snell & Wilmer Law Firm Collection, Southwestern Bell (Dallas) and Texas Instruments.
