James Miller was born in Dennistoun, Glasgow, on 25th October 1893. Miller attended The Glasgow School of Art from 1907 to 1917 as a day student of drawing and painting. His registered address during these years was Wilton Drive, Glasgow. According to the Dictionary of Scottish Art & Architecture, Miller was a painter of portraits, still-life and animals mainly in watercolour. Miller lived in Glasgow, Carrick Castle, Argyll and also had a home in Skye where he painted. He also travelled extensively abroad and made the architecture of major European cities his main subject matter. During the First World War, Miller sketched the war damage of Glasgow. Miller exhibited over a hundred works at the Royal Scottish Academy between 1921 and 1987, the year he died, and also exhibited extensively at the Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolour and the Royal Glasgow Institute of the Fine Arts.
