Daniel Miller was born in London in 1957 and went on to study at the Slade School of Fine Art. After leaving the Slade in 1981 he went to America and found that picture-making became a guide for his work that followed. On his return to London a few months later he worked with other young artists making public murals. Daniel's work is regularly exhibited and his book 'London Rites' was recently acquired by the Prints & Drawings Department at The British Museum. Daniel is currently working on a 'Modern Bestiary'.
Drawing is a journey I want to continue. Making drawings is a continuing search for new ideas, looking at current circumstances that are interesting or salient to progress. At first it's never clear to me if any particular sketch has a surviving quality – I've come to expect big surprises and a collage of sketches is more short-term than anything. Memory and its faithful service seem to be worth seeking, that's my feeling anyway. To draw with conviction is my aim.
