Artist: Bruce Miller
Miller's career is replete with awards and prizes, including Ducks Unlimited Artist of the Year in 1999, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation Artist of the Year in 2002 and 2011, and the National Wild Turkey Federation Artist of the Year in 2008. In art shows across the United States, he has earned over 50 awards and his paintings and prints have generated over $10,000,000 for conservation projects. Although he is best known for his wildlife images, he also enjoys painting in the impressionist style. He constantly challenges himself by experimenting with new media and by the formal study of the principles of good painting such as composition, values and edges. Clearly, he is one of Minnesota's most accomplished painters.
