Millard: “My art career began one evening as I started to drop my application for taking the Law Boards in the mailbox outside Timothy Dwight. Thinking there might be some other vocation that would provide more nourishment and excitement for my soul, instead of mailing the application I found an off-campus course in beginning drawing to see if I could acquire drawing skills to supplement my engineering background, in order to pursue an architecture degree. Upon my 50th birthday, after an architectural career culminating in my own practice, I inventoried how I was currently spending my life and decided to transition to more creative time in painting and drawing as opposed to spending an inordinate number of hours lobbying on behalf of clients at various city and county building departments. Now, happily, the transition is complete. I teach and paint as often as possible, living on Bainbridge Island, WA with my wife, Linda.”
