I have been painting most of my life. I am a native Californian and much of my inspiration comes from the beautiful natural landscape of the San Francisco Bay Area…the woods, the ocean, the rolling hills, the native wildflowers and wildlife. Being out in nature is an important part of my work and my goal is to show the spirit of nature, the life I feel around me as I tramp through the woods, or walk along the ocean.

Zen meditation has greatly influenced my style and subjects. The simple sun or moon so often in my paintings originated from the empty circle in Zen.

I am a second-generation artist. My father, Walter Sears Milnor (1936-2001), concentrated on painting large canvases of the California missions.
