Adam Scott Miller
An acute and lifelong visionary artist, ASM has intensively pursued ways of discovering and translating mystical insight into visual art.
Born and raised in central Pennsylvania, he was nurtured by family and teachers while nurturing his own self-realization towards a limitless and masterful visionary artist. Since childhood, his path as an artist was clear, as he spent great spans of time in concentration rendering his imagination into existence on paper.
Although mostly self-taught, he has an education from two of the USA’s top art schools: a BFA in Illustration from the Maryland Institute College of Art, and a Master of Fine Arts in Painting from the Massachusetts College of Art and the Fine Arts Work Center. In addition to specialising in painting and illustration, he has developed a repertoire of digital skills.
Knowing Visionary Art to be his path – and that world-changing revelations could be communicated through the visionary method – he chose the path of heArt. This road less traveled has since become a lifelong adventure of limitless growth and dilating creativity. In 2010, he moved from America to the ancient rainforest of far-northeast Queensland, Australia where he now lives and works as a studio artist and mentor, as well as being a loving father to his two-year old daughter Maia Lily (already an inspired, focused artist).
During his creative evolution, he has explored various schools of thought and consciousness-development, combining these with profound personal experiences into his own unique vision as an artist. Throughout his artistic development, ASM has learned a vast array of principles for how we see optically, perceptually and spiritually. Uniquely, he has developed a very particular technique of creating ‘drawing/paintings’ in the “ASMethod” – an approach that combines many of his techniques into a process that is both efficiently precise and limitlessly inspirational.
“Making images is my tool for discovery, and a by-product of the experience of my consciousness. This creative work is how I process and integrate my perceptions of the world – into new ways of seeing, and new insights for living,” he says. And he adds:
“I attempt to point to the ‘numinous’, which is characterized by the quintessential qualities of the sacred: mystery, awe, fascination, satisfaction, and inspiration. In my view, art serves as a reflection of our context, and achieves its maximum potential when it acts deliberately to improve and benefit the whole. This is the intent I create with, and I hope that my work, in some way, benefits you.”
His artwork has been praised for its refined craftsmanship and elegant envisioning of his perceptions – drawn from discovering the majestic beauty of the environments around and within us. This versatile artist is equally acclaimed for his oil paintings, digital paintings, video animations, public speaking, teaching, and performances as a live-painter.
