This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A three-generation showing of the art of Lew Miller and his family was held at the Thackeray Galleries in San Diego on March 5th, 1977. Although it was apparent that each of these artists were influenced by the other, it was interesting to see how their style and subject matter developed individually.

Lew's son, David, was representational in his approach to the subject, while his father Lew Miller, worked in palette knife largely in an impressionistic style. Lew painted all over the world but perhaps produced his most successful canvases from the local Midwest color which surrounded him.  These included citizens of his home town Van Wert Ohio, the county fair, fall scenes in Brown County Indiana, and nostalgia from his Ohio boyhood. Summers he spent at his favorite haunts of New England painters, as well as with his son painting Indians and the big country of the west.

Lew Miller's wife, Edna Humphreys Miller, studied art long before she met and married Lew in Van Wert, Ohio. "She excels in portrait work and is best known for her fines skin tones. One of Mrs. Miller's favorite stories concerns David as a toddler eating the oil paint from his father's palette."

This family of artists all received training from well known teachers of the times in Paris and in Munich, Germany.  Karl studied under Paul Nauer; Lew with Charles Hawthorne, the noted Cape Cod artist in Provincetown, Massachusetts; and Edna with George Bellows and Eugene Speicher in New York City.
