Meet Liz Miller



Liz is one of the teachers at the Artful Gathering event this summer.

Although Liz Miller CDA began teaching decorative painting in the Raleigh, NC area in 1985, her interest in art began many years before. As a child her love for horses lead her to drawing, first horses then people and more. Her favorite toys were crayons, paper, and any coloring book with horses included. Although she was always interested in art, Liz became a RN, then a belly dancer, and then a dance therapist, always drawn to the creative aspect of the job. When she discovered decorative painting and began sharing her discoveries by teaching others, she believed that this was a natural progression, still providing for the mental and physical health of her painters, through creative art therapy.

Currently Liz owns an art studio, Artful Endeavors, in Raleigh NC. She usually paints realistic style in acrylics, but enjoys creating and experimenting with watercolor and mixed media including watercolor batik. She teaches all levels of acrylics in weekly classes and workshops in her studio as well as travel teaching and hosting seminars with some of decorative painting’s finest national teachers. Liz is a DecoArt Helping Artist.

Liz has her Masters Degree in Dance Therapy, a creative arts therapy, from Hunter College in NYC. She is a member of the Society of Decorative Painters, The Carolina Mixed Media Art Guild, and The Heart of Carolina Tolers where she has served as chapter president and various other offices.

Liz’s artwork has been chosen for display at the permanent collection at the Society of Decorative Painting in Wichita, KS.

Liz has taught at the Society of Decorative Painting convention and is known for her graceful leaves and leaf study workshop. You can find her online classes at Creative Workshops.
