Willis Miller was reared in Oklahoma City and graduated from Oklahoma State University with a degree in Forestry.  At the age of 40 he was led to begin painting.  His first teacher, Janice Clark, was very instrumental in guiding him into the world of art.  Although he did not know her at the time, she observed some of his work in a frame shop.  She told the storeowner, “If he does not think he knows it all, I would like to teach him.”  From that point on she began instructing him without charge.  Around that time Janice was featured in a book entitled, “A Fine Age – Creativity As A Key To Successful Aging.”  Others whose artistic guidance he is thankful for Todd Williams, Irving Shapiro, Margaret Ellerman, Stephan Kramar and Douglas Walton.  

Willis is an Associate Member of Oil Painters of America, a Signature Member of Artists of NW Arkansas, a member of the Plein Air Painters of the Ozarks and Heart of America Artists Association.
