This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Cincinnati, OH on Sept. 7, 1858. Miller lived in Kansas City for several years and specialized in still lifes during his early career. Except for criticism and pointers on improving his technique from George C. Bingham, he remained a self-taught painter. Miller lived in New Mexico in the 1880s and settled in Los Angeles in 1893. He remained a resident of Los Angeles except for a period in the mid-1920s when he lived on the Monterey Peninsula. Traveling the California coast as far north as Mendocino, he painted coastals and landscapes, and made many painting excursions into the mountains and deserts of Colorado, Arizona and New Mexico. Miller died in Los Angeles on Dec. 14, 1945. Exh: Kanst Gallery (LA), 1909; Steckel Gallery (LA), 1910, 1912; Blanchard Gallery (LA), 1911; Wilshire Gallery (LA), 1927. In: CHS; Santa Fe Railway; Santa Barbara Hist. Society; Gardena High School.

This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Cincinnati, Ohio, he was a landscape and Indian genre painter, primarily self-taught except for some lessons from George Caleb Bingham. His work is held in the Santa Fe Railway Collection.

He lived in Kansas City several years and early in his career was a still life specialist.  By the 1880s, he was painting in New Mexico; in 1893, he settled in Los Angeles, and by the early 1900s, he was in Arizona doing landscapes and Indian genre.  He remained a Los Angeles resident except for living on the Monterey Peninsula in the mid-1920s.  He continued painting excursions into the mountains and deserts of Arizona, Colorado, and New Mexico.
