Betty G. Miller

Artist and advocate

Dr. Miller is a professional artist, consultant, and Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor (CADC) working with Deaf and hard-of-hearing patients. Daughter of deaf parents, a native Chicagoan, she was educated in oral and public-school “mainstream” settings, majoring in Art at Gallaudet College, where she later taught. She earned her M.A. in Advertising Design at Maryland Institute, College of Art, and her Ed.D. in Art Education at Penn State University, becoming the first Gallaudet alumna to earn a doctorate. She was also the first artist to depict the Deaf experience in her work. Appropriately, she was a signatory of the 1989 DeVIA (Deaf View Image Art) Manifesto. Her media encompasses paintings and neon; her imagery packs a political punch, celebrating ASL while recalling oralist oppression.
