    No stranger to fame, notoriety and recognition, Jack Miller worked and lived for nearly thirty-five years in New Orleans where he developed his unique style of etching.  He became widely known and respected for his architectural renderings of the French Quarter.
     Jack has brought his skills and talents to that which made him famous in New Orleans by offering architectural renderings of homes and buildings in Eureka Springs.  Jack is able to capture the essence and beauty of home or building with a one of a kind work of art.
     Jack remarks that he has found his niche in the unique and creative environment of the Ozarks.  
      The Krewe of Krazo presented him in 2012 with a well-deserved award for making Eureka Gras parades a visual feast.  Miller made the Red Shoe float, the Chariot of Fire float, and the Aquarius Waterwheel float as well as designing the King's float and the Queen's float, and the Cavaliers float, which took first place in its division in the 2012 Christmas Parade of Lights.
     The "Archie Ryan Loving Cup" has been presented each year honoring those individuals who have given of themselves to their fellow man and to the greater community of Eureka Springs. Thank you Jack Miller!
