Biography


Millie started painting at an early age and was winning ribbons by age 14.  Currently her focus is on American wildlife although she paints a variety of other subjects.    She and her husband Larry travel throughout the western United States photographing animals in national and wildlife parks including Alaska.  Millie paints almost entirely from her own photographs.  Except for high school and college art classes, she considers herself self taught, however, she has taken workshops and private instructions from some of the country's best artists, including Robert Bateman, Dan Meiduch, Joni Falk, Greg Beecham, Phil Beck and Chad Poppleton.  She credits all of them for guiding her progress as an artist.  She is a member of several art associations, including American Women Artists, Idyllwild Art Alliance, the California Art Club and the Palm Springs Art Center.  She takes part in several local and Palm Springs area art shows, as well as the American Miniatures Show at Settler's West Gallery in Tucson, Arizona,  Phippen Museum show in Prescott, Arizona, the San Dimas Wildlife Art Show , "Rawhide and Spurs show," at Mountain Trails Gallery, Santa Fe, New Mexico and "Deck the Walls" Holiday Show at Trailside Galleries in Jackson, Wyoming.   The Shaws live in the San Jacinto Mountains of Southern California on a small ranch.
