Miller is a former President of the North Carolina Association of Home Designers and past President of North Carolina Institute of Residential Design.
Miller has drawn a large selection of historical building, landmarks, churches, schools and colleges across the state, winning numerous local and state awards. Since the Spring of 1974 Miller has been commissioned by historical societies, county boards, art guilds, civic clubs, colleges and banks to draw various historical buildings in his finely detailed style. His passion for aviation has led him to develop a portfolio of over 100 aircraft sketches ranging from the Wright Brother's "Kitty Hawk" to World War I & II planes, experimental and commercial aircraft, to the Space Shuttle. Miller has also drawn steam locomotives, train stations and fishing and recreational boats.
In most recent years Miller has directed his talents to the media of watercolors, showing the same expertise as in his pen and ink.
