From Shirley Miller
Many years of school bus driving taught me that every day ordinary places that I had passed morning and night for many years could suddenly be spectacular because of the sun, a storm or the season. Special moments can happen anywhere and a camera let me take them home. If I got excited enough, a painting would happen and sometimes a poem as well. I often say "if you aren't excited how can you expect your viewer to be excited”.
“I could always draw. David Wick came to the Island in the early 1970s with a night school class in watercolours, it is there I learned about real paint and paper and brushes. I have been painting ever since and had my first show in 1979. I started teaching friends about painting but I think I have learned the most.” - Shirley Miller, Artist
