David Miller

David Miller's illustration style is unique, with intricate sculptures photographed to bring stories to life.  Paper had always fascinated him and he loved making things out of it.  


David studied art at Swinburne in Melbourne. His first employer, one of Australia's leading designers at the time, introduced him to paper sculpture. Later he worked as an Art Director in advertising agencies before starting his own design and illustration studio.


In 1995, David wrote and illustrated a book called You Can Make Paper Sculpture. He was then asked to illustrate Mem Fox's book Boo to a Goose. The publisher was keen for him to write and illustrate another book so What's For Lunch? and Carousel were published.


Since then David has created more picture books, including Snap Went Chester (by Tania Cox) which was CBC Short-Listed Book, Refugees a CBC Honour Book, and Big and Me.


David's amazing paper sculptures from the book Millie's Special Something, written by Tania Cox, was on exhibition at the Literature Centre in Terms 3 and 4, 2013. 


David Miller was a guest presenter at the Celebrate Reading National Conference - The Inside Story on Quality Australian Literature for Children, held at The Literature Centre in Fremantle from 13-14 September, 2013.
