Valerie Miller, Steel Cow - Waukon, Iowa

Born and raised in the Midwest, Valerie Miller grew up surrounded by farms and animals. At an early age she developed a fascination with cattle that she carried with her through college while studying art at Bradley University and business at the University of Iowa.

Immersed in the urban landscape while in college, Valerie began painting cows void of their usual rural surroundings like she then found herself. Today her paintings isolate individual cows from the herd, showing the character of each cow against a vivid background with an absence of location.

Valerie owns and operates (STEEL COW) gallery & studios located in Northeast Iowa. Valerie was most recently chosen to exhibit at Bradford Brinton Museum in Wyoming and has been featured in Teton Home & Living Magazine, KCRG-TV9 news, The Cedar Rapids Gazette, Lacrosse Tribune and countless other publications.

Original paintings by Valerie Miller can be found in art collections worldwide, and her collection of signed & framed cow prints can be found gracing our Iowa Artisans Gallery walls.
