Jennifer Miller's love of the outdoors from an early age developed into a life-long passion for the natural world. Though having received no formal education, she has always been driven by studying birds and recreating them in her artworks. By studying wildlife, and combining it with her vivid imagination, Jennifer is also a renowned fantasy artist. She has created many fantasy paintings and illustrations for publication, including several novel covers. She also enjoys sculpture, as well as crafting hand-made jewelry with precious metals and gems. Along with her artistic pursuits, Jennifer is active in conservation and paints endangered species to raise awareness. It was a natural transition for her to enter Duck Stamp Competitions, and this is her first win. Jennifer lives in a rural setting in Western New York, along with her husband Brian, four parrots, and a delightful flock of chickens.
