I am Michelle Miller, international artist, writer, entrepreneur and world traveler. As the founder of Studio Academy I strive to ignite your passion for painting, whether you are new to painting or experienced, the tutorial videos are easy to follow and challenge you to push yourself just the right amount. With each project you will learn advanced techniques, art history, the beauty of non verbal communication through painting and more. If you’re curious about my background and how I came to do what I do, get the scoop on my about page.

Rolling tomatoes is a project Miller has perfected from over 20 years of experience teaching students of all levels. It’s about movement and repetition, and is...

“There are no mistakes in painting and as a Studio Academy Insider you are not alone on your creative journey”

Here's what some michelle miller badge insiders have to say:


"...Michelle is an amazing artist and teacher but because she provides a safe, supportive and encouraging environment that has allowed me to unleash my inner artist and mute the negative self-talk."

"Delve deeper into the creative process through self-discovery."

"Delve deeper into the creative process through self-discovery."


With the ease of being able to do the video projects at home on your own time, there is real potential for you to delve deeper into the creative process through self-discovery. The way the projects and workbooks are set up, questions and suggestions are put forth that force you, the student, to find and explore connections, associations and patterns in your life. When we put aside some solitude time to be creative, and that creative time is prompted through my projects, there is a more visceral connection to your art. It's my hope that you will learn, not only to understand the materials and techniques at hand, to find balance between the visceral and cerebral, which is imperative in strong paintings.

The problem solving that happens in painting gives you permission to change your mind, be spontaneous and find different ways to explore parts of yourself that are personal and unique to you. As you explore, within your solitude time, you will find balance within yourself and the world around you; finding that balance in art is metaphorical for life.

Studio Academy opens people up emotionally, spiritually and creatively. Our students are brilliant creative thinkers, we connect likeminded individuals so we built a supportive, inclusive and encouraging community; support and encouragement is the foundation of our community. This community is monitored by Team Studio Academy and I. You can expect motivational tidbits, mini freebie projects exclusively for the Insider community and bi-weekly check-ins where I will critique your art and provide guidance and support as you grow. So, we invite you to share your art with likeminded individuals in our community, ask for support from me and my SA team when you need it, and get inspired to take bold courageous moves!
Remember there are no mistakes in painting and as a Studio Academy Insider you are not alone on your creative journey!

Ready to navigate your own personal landscape so you can arrive at the person you want to be in your life and in the world?
