About the sitter
Robbie Miller is a young Brisbane artist brought up to the sounds of Cat Stevens, Van Morrison and Neil Young. Robbie first picked up a guitar in 2002 and soon after started writing and recording music. His passion saw him graduate music from QUT in 2010 and has since developed his unique, solo sound. He is a long time mentor/program manager for the national Indigenous organisation AIME. Miller was my next door neighbour growing up and came to mind when thinking of the subject for this portrait not only for his talent but his humility and passion for others. 2013 saw Robbie take out the NIMA for Best New Indigenous talent which kickstarted his musical journey.
