Kenshin Miller is a Los Angeles-based oil painter.

I’m drawn to paint because in the act of creation, the physical act of painting itself takes over. Words cannot express what the dancing lights and shadows say as they arise, fall together, and saturate the canvas.

I’m a figurative artist, drawn to paint the natural world and its inhabitants, landscapes interrupted by human dissonance, by joy, laughter, and pain. It’s all too beautiful, and that’s what beckons. To paint is to be alive, to make a discovery, to celebrate a knowing of the way things are, arising and passing away all too quickly.
