Glynnis Miller is a self taught pencil artist who has loved to draw since early childhood winning awards in elementary, junior and high school. Her goal was to become a full-time artist, but "life" got in the way and the pencil was put aside as she married, raised two children and pursued a nursing career which lasted over 20 years.
Glynnis finally began her career as a professional artist only after retiring from the medical field. She began winning awards immediately from the first art show she entered. Glynnis' work portrays her lifelong love of horses and wildlife. School years were spent in Elko, Nevada which has been coined "the last real western town in the US". The influence of Elko's ranches, cowboys, rodeos and (of course) horses is evident in her artwork.
The pencil, graphite or charcoal, is glynnis' medium of choice as it allows her to focus on her signature fine detail and realism. Creating texture, contrast and form in shades of grey is the challenge she loves.
